Greece and the Inter-War Economic Crisis


Oxford University Press

This chapter first sets out the purpose of this book, which is to examine the period from 1929 to 1932 that constituted a watershed for Greece. It examines what happened when, as a consequence of the economic depression, Greece was forced to abandon its traditional reliance on agricultural exports, remittances, and foreign loans and turn instead towards a policy of autarkic development based upon domestic sources of growth. The chapter then discusses the economic recovery in the early 1930s, the abandonment of the gold standard to stimulate the domestic economy, and the influence of politics and ideology on recovery.

Keywords:   Greece, economic crisis, economic recovery, economic policy, gold standard
