  Ludwig Erhard Summary
Ludwig Erhard was born in the northern Bavarian city of Fürth on Feb. 4, 1897.
Erhard's economic views were summarized in his advocacy of a "social market economy," which one author has called a "free economy with a social conscience." Erhard wished to use private initiative to rebuild the shattered German economy but to check it when it tended toward monopoly, cartelization, or extreme labor union demands.
Ludwig Erhard (February 4, 1897–May 5, 1977) was a German politician (CDU) and Chancellor of West Germany from 1963 until 1966.

Under the Nazi regime Erhard maintained a low profile, continuing his work in the consumer sector, but in 1944 he wrote a memo on war financing and debt consolidation which began with the assumption that Germany would lose the war.
From that point forward, Erhard was seen as a reliable participant in the postwar effort to rebuild a democratic Germany.
In 1963 Erhard himself became chancellor, but in 1966 his own Cabinet opposed his proposed economic reforms to cope with a budget deficit and recession, and he resigned.

In this biography of one of the most important figures on postwar German history, Alfred C. Mierzejewski examines the life and service of Ludwig Erhard (1897-1977), West Germany's first minister of economics and second chancellor.
Erhard liberalized the German economy in 1948 and is generally considered the father of West Germany's "economic miracle" - the period of extraordinary growth in jobs and improvement in the standard of living in the 1950s that helped stabilize Germany's first successful democracy.
While recent scholarship has dismissed Erhard's influence on Germany's economic recovery, Mierzejewski returns to little-cited German analyses and Erhard's own record and concludes that Allied currency reform and Erhard's liberalization of the economy were crucial triggers for Germany's unprecedented economic boom.
