The comment on the submitted blog post about the Reich Ministry of Production being destroyed by a British bombing raid is food for thought. The claim is that killing bureaucrats of the Nazi government raised German military production for the remainder of the war--probably not the result the Allies intended.

America has a similar problem with lawyers getting their fingers in more and more pies, makes you wonder what would happen to productivity if everybody decided to stop suing each other for a couple of years.

I'd be interested to see if anyone has any more information on this. I did a couple of google searches but didn't get anything other than the article itself and some unrelated guff (though this may be due to my inability to construct a suitable search string).
