Hyperinflationary Patterns: Inflation Runs Wild  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche warns: “The world is presently gripped by a hyperinflationary wave-front of a Riemannian type.

Congress Must Tackle Hyperinflationary Blowout  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

Sometime very soon, Congress is going to be called upon to deal with the worst global financial and monetary shock collapse in modern times. Under the best of circumstances, such action will occur after the removal of Vice President Dick Cheney and President George W. Bush from office.
