A Design for Legislation: Saving the U.S. Economy  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche develops the model of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s measures to reverse the Depression. As FDR understood for his time, the intent embedded in the crafting of the U.S. Constitution, is also the key to the solution of this present crisis. LaRouche writes:

“The saying goes: ‘Do not speak of the rope in the house of the hanged.’

“It might also be said: ‘Do not speak of the onrushing, global, financial breakdown in the presence of members of the Houses of Congress.’

“Nevertheless, the time has come to speak, urgently, of what had been often treated, until now, as unspeakable truths.”

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche’s address to a Washington-based webcast on Nov. 16, 2006, plus the questions and answers from an international audience. “None of the well-meaning, leading financial authorities, and economic authorities, in the United States, or in Western Europe, or in the world at large,” LaRouche declared, “have any conception of how to solve the presently onrushing international financial-monetary and physical crisis: None! I do! Now, in this case, therefore, it is my job to state frankly what that solution is, and to identify the nature of the problem to which this remedy, this medicine, is to be applied, in order to cure the sick patient.”
