Economic Characteristics of the Radovljica District in the First Two Years of German Occupation
On the basis of German archive documents, the author presents the economic situation of the greater part of Upper Carnolia under German occupation. The occupier imposed a Germanic totalitarian regime and a war economy, controlling the distribution of raw materials, energy and labour, fixing maximum prices and introducing coupons for the distribution of goods to the public. Industrial production was reorientated to serve the needs of the army, and agriculture modernized to some extent while crafts, trade and tourism suffered regression under the occupation. By 1943, the planned economic reform failed due to the shortage of labour, construction material and finance required for modernization and new investments.
