The Marshall Plan was a brilliant idea that probably saved Europe from a series of Communist takeovers! You have to understand that after WW2 Europe was completely and I mean completely shattered! Only the neutrals such as Switzerland and Spain escaped the devastation of the war. For example, two… of the victors such as Great Britain and France were left destitute, their infrastructure in a shambles and they still had imperial commitments to their colonies and dominions. Also, they were both flat broke! In West Germany, the situation was even worse. After WW1, the Allies had made Germany pay huge reparations. Germany could not afford to do so, and this approach had led directly to the rise of extremist political parties including the Nazi's (and we all know what they started...WW2). The Marshall plan was a series of huge loans, both to the allies (France and Britain) and former foes (West Germany and Italy) that allowed them to rebuild their shattered society. if i remember correctly, the loans, the loans were sold to the US people with the notion that America needed an affluent Europe to purchase US goods and trade. Plus it would keep the strong and growing Communist influence at bay. A very poor answer, but i hope it starts you thinking...and researching! ( Full Answer )

The major goal of the Marshall Plan was to support European countries (especially the new ones) to keep them from becoming Communist.
It allowed for aid in the form of loans to be given to nations hurt by the war. Stalin made it illegal for Warsaw Pact countries to accept Marshall Plan aid, thus leaving them under the inefficient communist system. If it can be seen that the Western coutnries (or the countries that accepted Marshal…l aid) were mroe properous with a higher standard of living, it could help discourage the spread of communism simply trhough public opinion.

Yes. Marshalls does have a layaway plan. Marshalls will holdlayaway items for up to thirty days with a minimum payment of $10or 10%, whichever is greater, and a $5 non-refundable create fee.(Minimum payment amounts and create fees may vary by state.) Theentire layaway must be picked up or canceled w…ithin the 30 dayperiod. A $5 cancellation fee will be applied (in most states) whena layaway is cancelled. Please note that jewelry, items that havebeen marked down, food items and furniture cannot be placed onlayaway. In addition, other restrictions may apply. Just a word of caution. THIS POLICY IS STRICTLY ENFORCED and OFFERSNO GRACE. I had a layaway that I had paid on EVERY week. Even madean additional payment 3 days before the final due date. Well, I gotsick on the due date and consequently did not think about thelayaway. I went to pick the layaway up the very next day. Eventhough I had made consistent and very recent payments and was onlyONE day late, Marshalls had cancelled my layway. That was thepolicy. Its great Marshalls has the layaway option, but pleasenote...there is ZERO grace period in that policy. ( Full Answer )
