This is an interesting question, perhaps it is due to the fact that Czechoslovakia was created from the resource-rich regions of Austria and Germany. Perhaps this wealth maintained a more optimistic environment when the depression rolled around in the 30s?
That's certainly possible--though I would also like to mention the vast amounts of industry in Czechoslovakia (primarily in Czechia). I seem to have previously read something along the lines of Czechoslovakia being the tenth-most industrialized country in the world in 1938 (I'm don't remember if per capita or in general, though).
