1924 that committee scaled down the payments to 000 a yearl but that was only a temporary solution and four years later the Young commission was formed to determine how much and how long Germany should ave to pay The Young plan called a final settlement subtracted another 56000000000 from the total and accepted a system of spreading 526500000000 over 60 years all accounts to be settled by
