Mihm on the Potash Cartels

10 08 2013

Check out this Echoes post in which University of Georgia historian of capitalism Stephen Mihm discusses the history of international potash cartels. I particularly liked this sentence, “The Franco-German cartel continued to thrive through the 1930s, despite growing tensions between the two countries. ” It connects to a theme I blogged about recently, namely, the collaboration between businesses in the western democracies and the Nazis.

I would imagine that this item will be of particular interest to my readers in Saskatchewan.
