The Postwar Economic Development of West Berlin
Johnson, Kenneth A.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper will concern itself with a discussion of West Berlin's postwar economic development. Rather than simply amass material in this connection, I have attempted to isolate my research findings and deal with only a few related aspects. This procedure has been dictated by the short research period which would never have allowed a systematic treatment of the city's entire postwar growth. Thus, I have traced the effect of capital investments on the economy and then made an analysis of their influence on the industrial structure; this encompasses the core of the paper. In addition, the course of development in other areas of the economy is referred to in order to put the discussion into a more meaningful context.
