LaRouche Addresses Diplomats:
Mass Strike Is Opportunity To Create New Monetary System

Here is Lyndon LaRouche's strategic briefing to private luncheon attended by members of the Washington diplomatic corps, Aug. 19.
Today, I have to present, I think, on this occasion, a qualified forecast of some things which are certain, and some things which have yet to be decided. What is certain, as of now, unless there's a very radical change from anything in sight between now and the middle of October, is, we are in a period of a general breakdown of the entire world financial system. That is not an exaggeration. That's not maybe: The breakdown of the entire international financial system is now in progress.
The thing that will trigger the breakdown, is the collapse of the U.S. dollar. The whole system is ready to go: Where is the detonator on the explosive charge? The detonator on the explosive charge is inside the United States, and involves the effect of a collapse of the value of the dollar on the international market. And by collapse, I mean collapse...

The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism, by Stanislav M. Menshikov
March 23, 2007
—EIR News Service announced the publication of
The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism,
by Professor Stanislav M. Menshikov.

Translated from the Russian by Rachel Douglas, the book is an authoritative study of the Russian economy during the first 15 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union. The Preface, by EIR founder and contributing editor Lyndon LaRouche, titled, "Russia's Next Step," poses the need for U.S. policy-makers to study and grasp the "disease" presented in this book, since it represents "an economic global pandemic which we must all join to defeat."

  • LaRouche Addresses Diplomats:
    Mass Strike Is Opportunity To Create New Monetary System

    Lyndon LaRouche gave this strategic briefing to members of the Washington diplomatic corps on Aug. 19. The turnout of U.S. citizens for town hall meetings on the health-care issue exceeds anything on record, in recent times, he said. 'The population of the United States, in the main, has turned against the institutions of government in a phenonemon which is known historically as a mass strike. . . . You have a collision between a population which no longer trusts its President, no longer trusts its Congress, the Senate or the House of Representatives. Most members of the House of Representatives and Senate, believe they're not going to be re-elected in the next election, which is next year.' What will happen? The direction required for global reform is clear, but will national leaders act? 'All it takes is the will. The crisis will give the will, if the people are there, and the leaders are there to recognize the situation, and say, 'No more postponing this issue. Humanity is now in danger.' '

  • River of Denial Runs Through Washington, Jackson Hole
    The mantra that 'the crisis is past, recovery is coming' is being chanted by a chorus of bankers, regulators, economists, politicians, and journalists. There is a noticeable tinge of zealotry in the song, a hint that the truth of the recovery is too obvious to be ignored, and that anyone who disagrees simply isn't paying attention. Of course, they are lying—and they know it.

    Although the U.S. flu season has hardly begun, multiple counties in several states are already in unofficial 'crisis management mode.'

History

  • The Triple Entente:
    Sealed with Iranian Blood, Part 2
    by Dean Andromidas
    The British Empire's formation of the so-called Triple Entente—the combination of its Entente Cordiale with France (1904) and the Anglo-Russian Convention (1907)—led directly to World War I. Many of the people who created it were also involved in crushing Persia's Constitutional Government in 1911, and driving out Morgan Shuster, the American who was working with the Persian constitutionalists against the imperialists of Britain, Russia, and France.
