It came from after the war when everything new was called 'Americaan' or 'Americain' to sell it in some degree of gratitude to whomever it was who helped save Europe's delicate pink ass from die Wehrmacht. That sells.

We paid enough back with the Marshall plan. No gratitude required.


You should put some meat into your claim by including some figures as to how much of it was grants and how much loans. The MP was a fairly complicated program of financing. I'm just having a little fun with you to point out that there might have been some legitimate reasons that the America brand was selling stuff in Europe back around that time.
