Against the mainstream: Nazi privatization in 1930s Germany
The Great Depression spurred State ownership in Western capitalist countries. Germany was no exception; the last governments of the Weimar Republic took over firms in diverse sectors. Later, the Nazi regime transferred public ownership and public services to the private sector. In doing so, they went against the mainstream trends in the Western capitalist countries, none of which systematically reprivatized firms during the 1930s. Privatization in Nazi Germany was also unique in transferring to private hands the delivery of public services previously provided by government. The firms and the services transferred to private ownership belonged to diverse sectors. Privatization was part of an intentional policy with multiple objectives and was not ideologically driven. As in many recent privatizations, particularly within the European Union, strong financial restrictions were a central motivation. In addition, privatization was used as a political tool to enhance support for the government and for the Nazi Party.
The government owns a large portion of Chrysler, GM, bank, and insurance company stock right now and are leveraging for more control of their daily operation, that is owning the means of production. Maxine Waters on the floor of the senate basically said she was in favor of the government owning the oil companies here, so you tell me what more you need to complete your understanding bro.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
