What makes you say that Germany was bankrupt after the war 2...
Most of their industrial, cultural centers and infrastructure were gutted by the end of the war.
So who did they steal it off and kill...
Bohemia and Moravia (Czechoslovakia) - (March 1939)
Memel (part of Lithuania) - (March 1939)
Slovakia was set up as a German puppet state (1939)
The Netherlands (aka Holland) - 1940
The Channel Islands (UK depencencies) - 1940
Yugoslavia (Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia) - 1941.
Soviet Union (Russia - part only, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia) -1941
Egypt (- part only) 1942
That's not counting all the wealth stolen from the visiting or permanent residents of their numerous and notorious country clubs, I mean Camps
