It was under his leadership the country’s economy was moved to a war footing, it also provided the absorption of the Austrian economic system after the German Anschluss of the country.
However, in 1936 Schacht was forced to cede some powers to Hermann Goering, who led the Four-year plan, and in the end remained a Minister without portfolio, though, and kept thus until 1939 the management of the Reichsbank.
Further Schacht warned Hitler about the disastrous course of his economic policies, did not support the war with the Soviet Union and in 1942 he resigned from the post of Minister, and established contacts with the conspirators against the führer, whose speech in 1944, however, failed.
