End-Game 2005  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The inflationary cycle which was launched by Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan after the stock-market crisis of October 1987 is now coming to an end. “This cycle,” writes LaRouche, “which has recently, already entered its hyperinflationary phase in the market for primary commodities, will be the greatest international, hyperinflationary, financial-monetary collapse in modern history, unless U.S. and other policies are suddenly changed radically from the U.S. trends of the past thirty-five years.”

Gloom, yes; but doom, no! “I have never predicted inevitable doom, and do not predict inevitable doom now. It is the human free will, not statistics, which shapes the course of history. I have always, as now, presented nothing other than policies which represent the solutions needed to avoid oncoming economic catastrophes.”
