Die Euro Lüge: Capitalism & Its Law  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Reflecting on a new book by Germany’s Prof. Wilhelm Hankel, Die EURO Lüge und andere volkswirtschaftliche Märchen (The EURO Lie and Other Economic Fairy Tales), LaRouche analyzes the principled difference between the American System of political-economy, and the British money-oriented system. While he and Professor Hankel agree on many matters of political-economy, LaRouche notes, Hankel “takes John Maynard Keynes’ 1944 proposal to the Bretton Woods conference as his choice for the genesis of the post-1944 world monetary system; I, for my part, take a different standpoint, rooted in those notions of physical economy traced from Gottfried Leibniz’s concept of physical economy which informed President Franklin Roosevelt’s approach, rather than monetary economy.”
