    We didn't need anything and consumed almost everything domestically. We exported some, but it was mostly on foreign aid programs (we gave money to buy US goods)..

    The European nations were producing heavily by the 50s, as was the Japanese. They were not down for that long.

    But we spent so much on foreign aid and war.....so many billions. And we couldn't just print dollars on the gold standard, unlike today............

    Did you read the preceeding posts or just this one? I don't advocate a gold standard but balance of payments mattered back then.....which is what the video I posted discusses with regards to Panama's development as a tax haven....
