European Recovery 50th Anniversary of the Marshall Plan

http://lcweb.loc.gov/exhibits/marshall/

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: In a now-celebrated speech delivered at the Harvard University commencement on June 5, 1947, Secretary of State George Catlett Marshall (1880-1959) proposed a solution to the wide-spread hunger, unemployment, and housing shortages that faced Europeans in the aftermath of World War II. Marshall's address was the culmination of increasing U.S. concern over the disintegrating European situation. The physical destruction of the war and the general economic dislocation threatened a breakdown of moral, social, and commercial life. Raw materials and food were in short supply, and war-damaged industries needed machinery and capital before production could be resumed. The plan was the boldest, most successful, and certainly the most expensive foreign policy initiative ever attempted in peacetime. Standards 10.9.3 and 11.7.8
