RE: If the Nazis usually got it right, then...
On the economy thing, No J has it exactly right. Hitler didn't do anything so amazing that we can't figure it out. At the time he took power, the Germans had no real military and defense spending was a very small part of their GDP. Hitler instantly starting pouring money into the German military. That results in factories being built where people now went to work, which had positive impacts on unemployment. Add to that the conscription into the military that took most of the people 18 - 21 off the streets and gave them all an automatic job when they came of age and you have instant economic rebound. It's really not all that complicated and it's not that brilliant. Even the freeways people like to talk about as one of the "good" things that Hitler did were built primarily for military means. The autobahn was created to assist the future movement of troops and supplies.

I can't believe anyone would cite their medical advances given how they were done. Results obtained via experimenting on human beings are not something to celebrate.

I sincerely hope that was a joke.

As for the original list, if we are going to throw out Nazi accomplishments based on science fiction, then we would be remiss in not mentioning that they were instrumental in not only recovering the lost Ark of the Covenant but also the Holy Grail (which was then again lost when it was taken past the seal in the great hall and the Earth opened up and basically swallowed it).
