The programme of the NSDAP: Gottfried Feder
The Programme of the N.S.D.A.P. This book by Gottfried Feder was first published in May 1932 at the direct request of Adolf Hitler, for the coming Reichstag elections, and outlines the official National Socialist position on economic and social policy. The opening chapter describes the rise of the N.S.D.A.P. and includes a biographical history of the career of Adolf Hitler.
The book outlines a wide range of proposals that formed the basis of official NSDAP policies, none of which could be altered – not even by the NSDAP Council of Administration. Hitler was fully aware of the broken election pledges of ”democratic” politicians, and he had no intention of allowing the NSDAP to become yet another talking shop where political programmes are discarded once a political party gains power. To this end Hitler states ”the Programme is fixed, and I shall never suffer changes in the principles of the movement, as laid down in its Programme.”
Gottfried Feder, was the principal economic theoretician behind the National Socialist ”economic miracle” that saw the prosperity of the German people transformed within 3 years of Hitler being elected to power.
