I'm an experimental condensed matter physicist, but I'm very curious about high energy physics as well.

comment What is the history of Research and Development laboratories?
It's an interesting (and important) question for sure, but perhaps "R&D Lab" needs to be better defined. What counts as an "R&D Lab"? A corporate research facility? A government national lab? A research university science department? A private think tank? The garages where many tech companies started? Someone's basement? Which of these are "R&D Labs"?

Upvote for interesting. How many people were on the European side? Do you have a source?

@LennartRegebrov I realize that it was a khanate. Thanks for these numbers. Perhaps you should post an answer.

@Tom Au: I think horde originally derives from a Mongol word, so a more appropriate question would be to ask, "How did the word horde become associated with an overwhelming number of people?"

@T.E.D. Sure, embezzled might not be the appropriate term if the government can legally do anything it wants. Use the term "diverted" if you want.

Thanks for the answer! However, I'm not looking for what the silver would be worth today. I'm looking for what the silver would be worth back then in terms of today's USD, if such a metric is possible. Nevertheless, your answer is very helpful!

comment GDP per capita during WWII?
@Drux. Thanks for the tip! I've only used Alpha for math. Unfortunately, Alpha's statistics only seem to go back to 1970.
