Barkley might be off base here. I thought that the industry in the east was
largely old line, steel-like manufacturing. In part, the appeal of the Nazis to
big business was its protection of these outdated dinasaur firms. If so, the
figures that he is using are likely to be distorted. Where was the more modern
industry located before the war?
Also, the E. and the W. had different social structures, with the E. more like
Latin America and the W. more like the Asian tigers.
