"Now, as we speak, the hands of the players are already moving."
By Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. With continued British efforts to ram through the Lisbon Treaty before Summer, "London clearly did not intend that it should submit its own self to that imperial tyranny, the presently proposed Treaty, which it has been hastening to impose on the western and central regions of the continent. . . .
"The proverbial fly in London's dish, is that the present international financial-monetary system is already at the verge of an early plunge into a vortex, a global breakdown-crisis now menacing the world at large. Thus, the effort to ram through the Lisbon Treaty, creates a world crisis which is already echoing, immediately, many of the kinds of economic and related features which are to be associated with the earlier outbreaks of the two so-called world wars of the previous century."
Far from having been stabilized, the global banking system is on life support, kept alive by extensive government funding while it is being restructured. The downsizing is already traumatic, but it has only begun, because the reason for the existence of much of the banking system has disappeared.
The London loophole.
