SOCIAL POLICY IN THE NEW NS GERMANY
Leader of the National Labour Front
The great importance of social policy to the working population of Germany cannot be properly appreciated without some knowledge of the changes that have come over the country’s economic structure during the last fifty years or so. In the ‘eighties of the past century, that structure was relatively balanced; but since then the process of industrialisation has made enormous headway. Large parts of the population are now concentrated in the big towns and in the industrial districts, whilst – on the other hand – extensive agricultural regions are but sparsely populated.
