The Marshall Plan Is Signed Into Law (April 3, 1948)

Harry S. Truman’s signature enforces the European Recovery Program (ERP), which is based on an initiative by the former secretary of state George C. Marshall. In his mind post-war Europe was doomed without outside help. The severe destruction from the war and the disastrous supply situation would lead to the destitution of the entire continent, which in turn would have repercussions on the USA. Thus the USA decides to offer a massive financial aid package—on the condition that the European states cooperate with each other. After months of proceedings the Organisation for European Economic Cooperation is initiated, to monitor and distribute the funds from the Marshall Plan. Over the next four years the 16 member states receive about 12.4 billion US Dollars (nearly 10 times as much in 2018 US dollars), which is primarily used to purchase much needed food, raw materials and goods. The only requirement is that the recipients purchase mostly American products. Thus the Marshall Plan doesn’t just come to the aid of humanitarian causes but also benefits the USA’s interests: the sale of their own products and the resuscitation of trade relations. By promoting a strong and united Europe the Marshall Plan also doubles as an important tool in the Truman doctrine’s containment policy against the Soviet Union. As such, it is a first product of the Cold War. In July 1947 the USSR initiates its own aid program, the Molotov Plan. But the Soviets simultaneously demand very high reparation payments which slows down the economic recovery severely, particularly in East Germany. The Marshall Plan on the other hand enables Western Europe to experience a swift economic upswing. Starvation and misery disappear within just a few years. In 1953 Marshall is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
