LaRouche’s Jan. 22 Webcast: ‘The Issue Is Bankruptcy’  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche told the Washington and online audience that the most crucial problem facing President Barack Obama is the bankruptcy of the global system. The solution, he stressed, is to place the financial system into bankruptcy reorganization, and to carry out Franklin Roosevelt’s intention to eliminate the British Empire. To do this, LaRouche declared: “Put the Federal Reserve system into receivership. Move to create a National Bank of the United States in the Hamiltonian tradition. Use the National Bank as a way of cleaning up the Federal Reserve system, and use it for the kinds of things that Roosevelt would have done, were he alive today, to do it.”

In the discussion period, LaRouche fielded questions from Russia, Belarus, Pakistan, and from the team of economic policy advisors gathering around the new American President.
