LaRouche Presents Program for World Economic Recovery  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Speaking from Washington, D.C., in an Oct. 1 webcast, Lyndon LaRouche said that the world is entering into a period of danger comparable only to the collapse into the 14th-Century New Dark Age in Europe. He pointed out that on July 25, 2007, he had said that we were at the beginning of this collapse and disintegration of the entire international monetary-financial system, and had advanced proposals for dealing with the crisis, but these plans were not implemented. The attempted bailout of the already dead monetary system, which is now being forced on the country, will lead to hyperinflation. While there are no remedies for Wall Street, he stated, there are remedies for the nation, if we go back to what he proposed a year ago. He further warned that the White House has troops in position, ready to crush any opposition to the hyperinflationary bailout of Wall Street.
