Our Economics Policy: Animation and Economics  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. locates the crucial issues of economic policy today, in the historical context of the fight between Plato and sundry varieties of Sophist and other reductionist opponents, and in an understanding of the evil role of the oligarchy. “You will come to know, that that fight is the pivotal issue, the standpoint from which the relevant principles of physical science must be understood, in opposition to all reductionists, today. This situates that method of animations, which I outline here, which reveals, and supplants the anti-scientific frauds of the reductionist propaganda popular on university campuses and their blackboards and textbooks today. Eliminating the dictatorship exerted by such reductionist propaganda, still today, is presently crucial for the economic recovery, and for the survival of both the U.S.A., and of civilization generally.”

by Nancy Spannaus

“If the Nov. 2 vote proves to be legitimate,” commented Lyndon LaRouche on Nov. 3, “that is, that there was no massive fraud or errors, then it demonstrates that a larger portion of the American people are crazier than I previously imagined. This is particularly clear among those who cling, still, to the delusion that Bush has been successful in dealing with the economy.” With the financial crash coming on fast, even George Bush will soon wish he hadn’t been re.elected.
