Many business leaders had welcomed Hitler's rise to power due to his anti-Communist and anti-trade union stance.  But by the late 1930s, taxation, regulations and general hostility towards the business community were becoming so onerous that one German businessman wrote: "These Nazi radicals think of nothing except ‘distributing the wealth,'” while some businessmen were “studying Marxist theories, so that they will have a better understanding of the present economic system."  In other cases, National Socialist officials were levying harsh fines of millions of marks for a “single bookkeeping error.”  The anti-business motives behind the Nationalist Socialists has been attributed to the Nazi leadership’s aim “to soak the rich and ‘neutralize big spenders,’” since they harbored “hostility towards the wealthy.”  The National Socialists were also hostile to trade associations and small corporations. Hitler’s administration decreed an October 1937 policy that “dissolved all corporations with a capital under $40,000 and forbade the establishment of new ones with a capital less than $200,000,” which swiftly affected the collapse of one fifth of all small corporations.  On July 15, 1933 a law was enacted that imposed compulsory membership in cartels, while by 1934 the Third Reich had mandated a reorganization of all companies and trade associations and placed them “under the control of the state.”  While some National Socialist diehards proposed a total ban against all trading of stocks and bonds in an effort to prevent the spread of “Jewish capital,” others, in their anti-capitalist quest, sought “the abolition of income not earned by work or toil and distinguish between ‘rapacious’ and ‘productive’ capital.”  Nonetheless, the Nazi regime was able to close most of Germany’s stock exchanges, reducing them “from twenty-one to nine in 1935,” and “limited the distributed of dividends to 6 percent.”  By 1936 Germany decreed laws to completely block foreign stock trades by citizens. 
Hi, I snapped my achilles tendon on 4 July and had my op to stitch it back together 17 July. I snapped mine playing netball, it was my second game so I was warmed up, I literally just went for the ball and felt a snap and thought someone had kicked my ankle. I felt no pain at all and never have done apart from falling onto my foot when I was on crutches which was excruciating. Getting the boot was like freedom and I am now on the lowest wedge. As of this week I am able to go to bed without the boot on but occasionally wake up cramp in my calf - has anyone else had this? Next Friday I will be boot free which will be fantastic, however now I am worried about how my foot will be after the safety blanket of the boot and how physio will be?
