 Young Plan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After the Dawes Plan was put into operation (1924), it became apparent that Germany could not meet the huge annual payments, especially over an indefinite period of time.
The plan was formally adopted at the second Hague Conference in January 1930.
Between agreement and adoption of the plan came the Wall Street Crash of 1929 which main consequences are twofold: the American Banking system had to recall money from Europe and cancel the credits that made possible the Young Plan.

 U.S. Senate: Art & History Home > Charles G. Dawes, 30th Vice President (1925-1929)
Dawes became a highly decorated military officer during the First World War, was the president of a prestigious financial institution, was the first director of the Bureau of the Budget, and devised the "Dawes Plan" to salvage Europe's postwar economy, for which he received the Nobel Peace Prize.
Dawes similarly bristled over the social requirements of the vice-presidency, and as one Washington hostess recorded, "his social tactics, no less than his insubordination to the Senate, brought down blame upon him in Washington." Although he frequently dined out and entertained generously, it was always on his own terms.
Dawes, whose early career was shaken by the panic of 1893, was now confronted by an even greater financial crisis, one that shook his natural self-confidence and ended whatever remaining political chances he might have had.

 CHAPTER ONE: Wall Street Paves the Way for Hitler
Both plans were engineered by these central bankers, who manned the committees for their own pecuniary advantages, and although technically the committees were not appointed by the U.S. Government, the plans were in fact approved and sponsored by the Government.

Under the Dawes Plan regime of 1924 to 1928, Germany indeed borrowed the equivalent of 25% of her national income of 1929 abroad, largely from the U.S., thereby far outweighing reparation payments during the same period.
Under the Dawes Plan, reparations annuities had started from low amounts and grew into sizable amounts since 1927, bound to reach a steady state of 2.5 bn RM per year in 1929.

Until 1932, the volume of claims and the form of payment was being negotiated -- mostly at the conference table, sometimes at gunpoint (such as in 1923, when the French and Belgian armies invaded the Ruhr because a shipment of telegraph poles was overdue).
After the hyperinflation, in 1924, the Dawes Plan gave Germany access to a big loan, some relief from reparations payment, as well as "transfer protection" -- money to satisfy the allies could only be sent abroad when the conversion of marks into foreign currency did not undermine the currency's stability.
