I agree that much of the economic ruin that followed World War I and the Treaty of Versailles was inherited by the Weimar Republic rather than caused by it.  To meet the outrageously high reparations payments demanded by the Treaty, shipments of gold were sent from Germany every six months, depleting national gold reserves and raising inflation.Germany was given a six month reprieve when it missed a payment, and then they missed another one and the French invaded the Ruhr Valley and began confiscating not only factories and trucks, but the minerals from the Ruhr mines.  Germans went on strike rather than mine for the French, and inflation went through the roof.So if the Weimar Republic was responsible for anything, perhaps it would be their inability or unwillingness to enforce order within the country, or to engage diplomatically outside of the country.  Still, I don’t think it would have been enough.
