Corporatism = Fascism? American Funding of Nazis.

An excerpt from Antony Sutton‘s book Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler (1976):

“The prominent financial backer of an early Roosevelt Wall Street venture from 120 Broadway was Gerard Swope of General Electric. And it was “Swope’s Plan” that became Roosevelt’s New Deal — the fascist plan that Herbert Hoover was unwilling to foist on the United States. In brief, both Hitler’s New Order and Roosevelt’s New Deal were backed by the same industrialists and in content were  quite similar — i.e., they were both plans for a corporate state. “

“There were then both corporate and individual bridges between FDR’s America and Hitler’s Germany. The first bridge was the American I.G. Farben, American affiliate of I.G. Farben,  the largest German corporation. On the board of American I.G. sat Paul Warburg, of the Bank of Manhattan and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The second bridge was  between International General’ Electric, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Electric Company and its partly owned affiliate in Germany, A.E.G. Gerard Swope, who formulated FDR’s New Deal, was chairman of I.G.E. and on the board of A.E.G. The third “bridge” was  between Standard Oil of New Jersey and Vacuum Oil and its wholly owned German  subsidiary, Deutsche-Amerikanisehe Gesellschaft.”

“The chairman of Standard Oil of New Jersey was Walter Teagle, of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He was a trustee of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Georgia Warm Springs Foundation and appointed by FDR to a  key administrative post in the National Recovery Administration.”

“These corporations were deeply involved in both the promotion of Roosevelt’s New Deal  and the construction of the military power of Nazi Germany. Putzi Hanfstaengl’s role in the  early days, up to the mid-1930s anyway, was an informal link between the Nazi elite and the White House.”
