Nazi economic plans for Europe post-war?

Post by stg 44 » 29 Jul 2015 17:51

I'm listening to a podcast about the Bretton Woods Conference and one of the main drivers of Keynes pushing for it was the British getting a copy in 1940 for what the long term Nazi plan for Europe was and wanting to counter it. What was the Nazi plan for the greater European economy after the war ended had they won? I'm not talking about their settlement plans in the East, rather their plans for Western/Central Europe and the Balkans.

The post war was the same as the war period. Everything was to be for the benefit of Germany.

What was the structure though? I'm looking for details and as far as I can tell originally the post-war plan early on was not what the war years were and in fact Keynes was somewhat positive about the leaked German plan.

Maximum exploitation of resources to be sent to Germany regardless of effect on local economy, was the war time policy.

That is not what I've been able to find:
