Principles of EIR Economics: What the EIR Economic Charts Will Show You  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“Henceforth, the core of EIR’s reporting on the U.S. economy, will be a graphic portrayal of the way in which the physical health of that economy is measurable as changes in comparative physical, as distinct from monetary-financial values. This will include such treatment of physical changes, as these are to be measured county by county, for the entirety of the U.S.A., over a base-line period for comparisons, from approximately 1926 to the present. These measurements will not be made as mere comparisons; they will be measured, where appropriate, by aid of animations, as ongoing processes. The object is to get away from the inherently misleading accounting practice of comparing static cross-sections. The object is to convey a meaningful sense of economic processes as characteristically non-linear, long-wave, physical processes per se.”

Torture Trail Leads to White House, Cheney

Contrary to the spin being put on the Schlesinger and Fay reports by the Administration, the facts in those reports lead in a very different direction than their official conclusions of finding no culpability on the part of high-ranking officers or civilians.
