The Economics of the Second World War: Seventy-Five Years On

Edited by Stephen Broadberry () and Mark Harrison ()

in Vox eBooks from Centre for Economic Policy Research

Abstract: May 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe, a defining moment in modern history which signalled the beginning of the end of years of bloody conflict that left a world fragmented. The scale of mobilisation of all sectors of the economy and society had redefined the concept of ‘total war’. This eBook brings together recent research on a range of aspects of the war including the extensive war preparations of the great powers; the conduct of the war (including the management of economic mobilisation, economic warfare, economic exploitation, and the role of economists); and the war’s consequences for demography, inequality, economic recovery and political attitudes. Overall this eBook provides a unique insight into the importance of economics and the sometimes overlooked role that economists played in shaping the war and its outcomes.
