The Marshall Planaka “European Recovery Program”

  • A four-year effort by the Truman

    Administration consisting of $13 billion in

    economic aid to Europe in order to rebuild

    the economies that had been devastated by

    World War 2.

  • Containment of Soviet influence was the

    objective since many believed that economic

    hardship would make Communism more

    appealing to some nations.

    of the audience must provide one

    argument that convinced them to support

    position.
