Hyperinflation Is Here!: This Economic Breakdown  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche writes that the insane decision “to launch a ‘stimulus’ package for the U.S.A. economy, has committed the U.S.A. to its present entry into a new trajectory: that of a hyper-inflationary economic breakdown-crisis,” comparable to that of 1923 Weimar Germany. Unless this trend in policy-shaping in process is stopped, there is no part of the world which would not be soon swept into a chain-reaction form of global hyper-inflationary collapse comparable to that of Europe’s Fourteenth Century. But this threat could be stopped, if the kinds of U.S. emergency reforms which LaRouche has prescribed, are taken.

Fed Copies Weimar Hyperinflation: Yes, That Is a Stimulus Package, and No, I’m Not Happy To See You  

by The Basement Team

The LaRouche Youth Movement Basement Team shows that the hyperinflationary frenzy which engulfed Weimar Germany in the years immediately after World War I, is a dramatic example of what can happen to a nation when its productive capacity is destroyed, and it turns to the printing of money to try to preserve its economy.

‘A Time of Unexampled Prosperity’: The Great Mississippi Bubble  

by Washington Irving

In 1819-20, the American writer, historian, and patriot, Washington Irving, set out to educate his fellow citizens about the folly of succumbing to financial bubbles created by rampant speculation. He used the example of “The Great Mississippi Bubble” of 1719, which was created by English speculator John Law in France, whereby Law sent the French economy into a speculative mania of soaring interest rates and hyperinflation, based only on the promise of future land values in France’s Louisiana Territory around America’s Mississippi River, which left the nation in ruins when the bubble burst.
