Marshall Plan

Named for Secretary of State George C. Marshall, the Marshall Plan was officially known as the European Recovery Program. In the wake of World War II, the economies of many nations, particularly those of Europe, were devastated. The Marshall Plan offered economic aid for the reconstruction of these nations with the view that economic stability would engender political stability. Eventually, more than $12 billion were allocated during a four year period. The Marshall Plan proved effective in restoring the economies of many nations and reduced the prospects that communism would spread to Western Europe.
