Das Manifest Zur Brechung Der Zinsknechtschaft Des Geldes

By Gottfried Feder

Originally published in 1919, this new English translation of one of the most important historical economic manuscripts proposes some revolutionary changes to the German economy that are also applicable to any nation today. Gottfried Feder was a key founder of the German Nazi Party and the economic mentor of Adolf Hitler.

In his Manifesto, Gottfried Feder goes after Mammonism and interest-slavery while proposing new ideas and solutions to common economic woes, especially problems affecting Germany at the time.

How sound were Feder's ideas in real-world application? Well, Within two years of Adolf Hitler being elected, the unemployment problem had been solved and the country was back on its feet. It had a solid, stable currency, no debt, and no inflation, at a time when millions of people in the United States and other Western countries were still out of work and living on welfare. Germany even managed to restore foreign trade by using a barter system: equipment and commodities were exchanged directly with other countries, circumventing the international banks. This system of direct exchange occurred without debt and without trade deficits.

Published without the typical anti-German footnotes found in many translated Nazi documents (especially as seen in Mein Kampf), this Manifesto is must-read for any student of either history or economics!
