Alternative views of charity and aid.
(Marshall Plan: One of the causes of World War II was the collapse of the European economy. To avoid a repeat of this situation and to create a strong economy that would enable Europeans to resist Communist aggression, the United States decided to aid European recovery. Under the Marshall Plan, named after United States Secretary of State George C. Marshall, the United States provided more than 13 billion dollars to rebuild western Europe. The plan was a great success and laid the foundations for the European Economic Union (Common Market). The Soviets refused to allow the eastern European nations under their control to participate.
