ARAB Archief Société Générale. Vierde storting. 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 position made it relevant to regulate the sea coast. Having occupied the kingdom, 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 established in the first position overstretched German pursuits and quickly introduced Norway’s economic climate to its limits. Consequently, Germany might 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 profession financial system at huge. while Alan Milward considered Nazi financial 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 via Harald Espeli. Like Milward and Bohn, he identifies the funds account set up in Norway’s crucial bank, which supplied limitless overdraft amenities for the career authorities, as the main instrument of financial exploitation. By drawing attention to the incentive constitution for Norwegian company set by means of 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 through Milward and Bohn, he maintained that the ‘occupation was characterized by economic modernization’. 2 This contribution units out to tricky the trend of monetary exploitation extra intimately. It distinguishes among direct and oblique ability. between potential of direct exploitation is booty and requisitions which have been unpaid for, pressured credit via the bilateral clearing account and compelled credit via Norwegian funds debts. between oblique skill are phrases of exchange altering in Germany’s favour, which may let Germany to ultimately draw worth out of Norway, as good as compelled subsidies from the Norwegian govt to Norwegian businesses exporting their items to Germany. The development 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.
