Koreas Open DMZ at Last: ‘Silk Road’ Rail Construction Starts  

by Kathy Wolfe

The historic breakthrough sets the stage for rebuilding the “Iron Silk Road”—the trans-Korean rail and road links severed for 50 years. A key component of Lyndon LaRouche’s conception of a Eurasian Land-Bridge, this was the work of all Eurasia, to help the Koreas toward reunification, and to fend off the threat of war and economic collapse.

Special Report: Science and Infrastructure  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

We now face a form of global financial-economic crisis far worse than that of 1929-1933, writes Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. “The most urgent of the immediate, specifically physical-economic U.S. reforms required by this crisis, involves immediate adoption of policies for rebuilding the U.S.A.’s basic economic infrastructure. Sweeping measures for rebuilding the systems of power generation and distribution, water management, land reclamation, health-care, and education, must be fully under way during the 2003-2004 interval. There are two aspects of the United States’ basic economic infrastructure which desperately require even more immediate attention, even prior to the November 2002 mid-term elections: saving and rebuilding both the national railway system and the complementary air-transport system.”
