Echoes of the Fall of the House of Bardi: Wall Street’s New Dark Age  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The Wall Street bailout package concocted by Treasury Secretary Paulson, Fed Chairman Bernanke, and the Congressional leadership, demonstrates that they lack the special category of moral intelligence which distinguishes the human species from baboons. Their moral failure could get you, your family, and our republic killed. “Since the close of July 2007,” LaRouche writes, “the entire international bubble created by these and kindred monetarist practices, practices which were launched during Greenspan’s tenure, has been lurching toward the implicitly inevitable stage of a general, planet-wide, financial-monetary ‘breakdown-crisis,’ a crisis comparable, factually, to Europe’s Fourteenth-Century ‘New Dark Age’ crisis.”

A Volcanic Eruption Against the Bailout  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

By Sunday, Sept. 21, the American public had erupted in spontaneous, coast-to-coast rage against the scheme. Lawmakers found themselves caught between Wall Street’s demand for a quick fix, and the pent-up anger of their constituents at the total failure of Washington to deal with their life-and-death needs.
