West Germany, part of a country Britain had helped defeat in 1945, quickly reformed its currency in 1948 and adopted a social market economy. Over the next thirty years, the West German economy grew at a rate roughly double that of Great Britain, in the process becoming the main driver of European growth. This talk explores the extent to which the British thought there were lessons to be learned from Germany’s economic success, particularly in the fields of economic policy, competition and productivity, industrial relations, education and training, and industrial and consumer product design.
