The 20s

Golden twenties

The first war was over. The term Golden Twenties stands for the economic upswing of the global economy and refers to the heyday of German art, culture and science. The economic upswing was also due to the large loans that Germany received from abroad, especially from the United States.

The introduction of the Rentenmark stopped hyperinflation, and the Treaty of Versailles was also partially adapted to the possibilities of the German economy through the Dawes Plan and the Young Plan. A phase of economic upswing and political calm soon set in.
