The US emerged much richer than any other nation; it had a baby boom and by 1950 its gross domestic product per person was much higher than that of any of the other powers and it dominated the world economy. [298] The UK and US pursued a policy of industrial disarmament in Western Germany in the years 1945–1948. [299] Because of international trade interdependencies this led to European economic stagnation and delayed European recovery for several years. [300] [301] Recovery began with the mid-1948 currency reform in Western Germany, and was sped up by the liberalisation of European economic policy that the Marshall Plan (1948–1951) both directly and indirectly caused. [302] [303] The post-1948 West German recovery has been called the German economic miracle. [304] Italy also experienced an economic boom [305] and the French economy rebounded. [306] By contrast, the United Kingdom was in a state of economic ruin, [307] and although it received a quarter of the total Marshall Plan assistance, more than any other European country, [308] continued relative economic decline for decades. [309] The Soviet Union, despite enormous human and material losses, also experienced rapid increase in production in the immediate post-war era. [310] Japan experienced incredibly rapid economic growth, becoming one of the most powerful economies in the world by the 1980s. [311] China returned to its pre-war industrial production by 1952. [312] Estimates for the total casualties of the war vary, because many deaths went unrecorded.
