10 Nazi Germany’s financial exploitation of Norway during the occupation, 1940–1945 Hans Otto Frøland Nazi Germany occupied Norway for military-strategic reasons. The country’s geographic situation made it primary to keep an eye on the beach. Having occupied the state, Germany would also actuate massive building schemes, mostly for military purposes but also to bring the Norwegian economy closer to the German economic sphere. Being highly import based in the first position overstretched German pursuits and quickly introduced Norway’s financial system to its limits. Consequently, Germany could maintain a Norwegian import surplus and supply a massive influx of people into the country. This structural perspective is dominating the two scholarly monographs dealing with the Norwegian career financial system at huge. while Alan Milward considered Nazi fiscal policies from an aggregate point of view to investigate fascist policy, Robert Bohn set out to scrutinize the economic policies of the Reich Commissariat from an institutionalist angle. In spite of these differences, their conclusive views are complementary. either emphasize the discrepancy between Norway’s profound dependence on foreign trade and Germany’s overstretched plans to expand the economy. 1 From these predicaments followed a specific pattern of harsh exploitation through forced credits, most profoundly addressed through Harald Espeli. Like Milward and Bohn, he identifies the funds account set up in Norway’s primary bank, which supplied limitless overdraft amenities for the profession authorities, as the main instrument of financial exploitation. By drawing attention to the incentive constitution for Norwegian enterprise set via German spending as good as the longterm effects of German investments, he emphasizes the level of business collaboration as well as the long-term return of investments in the postwar years. Implying that the impact of monetary exploitation used to be much less unfavorable than assumed by way of Milward and Bohn, he maintained that the ‘occupation was characterized by economic modernization’. 2 This contribution units out to complicated the trend of monetary exploitation extra intimately. It distinguishes among direct and oblique capability. between capability of direct exploitation is booty and requisitions which have been unpaid for, pressured credit via the bilateral clearing account and compelled credit via Norwegian money money owed. between oblique potential are phrases of exchange altering in Germany’s favour, which might permit Germany to in some way draw worth out of Norway, as good as compelled subsidies from the Norwegian govt to Norwegian businesses exporting their items to Germany. The trend of exploitation is analysed in a wider institutional and structural context, which takes account of Germany’s strategic aims as well as institutional rivalries between the Wehrmacht and the Reich Commissariat.
