To Restore Glass-Steagall:
Dump Barney Frank Now!
by Jeffrey Steinberg

June 21—In response to a direct challenge from LaRouche Democrat Rachel Brown, who is challenging him for the party's Congressional nomination in the Sept. 14 Massachusetts primary election, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) lied through his teeth. Brown has focussed her campaign on the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act, the FDR-era law that created a wall of separation between the commercial and investment banks and insurance companies. Brown has also called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama, and for an expansion of the NASA manned space program, which President Obama has shut down.
Appearing together before the Brookline Democratic Club June 13, Brown accused Frank of being one of the engineers of the destruction of Glass-Steagall, and one of Wall Street's and London's key defenders on Capitol Hill.
In response to Brown, Barney blustered, like the slimy sophist he is, that he had voted against the repeal of Glass-Steagall, and that the ``financial reform'' bill now working its way through the House-Senate conference would be the strongest banking reform bill since the New Deal....

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 to Paris Conference:
    A Global Glass-Steagall as the Basis for Optimism

    Lyndon LaRouche addressed the General Assembly in Paris of Solidarité et Progrès, the French political party led by longtime LaRouche associate Jacques Cheminade, on June 13, via electronic hookup. The great mistake, LaRouche said, in most political thinking about economy, is that people tend to think that history is driven by events. But significant events are generated by history, not history by events.

  • Isotopes and Life:
    Considerations for Space Colonization
    by Meghan K. Rouillard.

    The science-driver policy of colonizing space, which Lyndon LaRouche has declared to be the indispensable mission for advancing mankind, will require many fundamental scientific breakthroughs— indeed, a decisive break from the empiricist so-called science of today. This paper, part of a series being produced by LaRouche's 'Basement Team,' addresses the question of the nature of isotopes from the standpoint of the issues raised in creating an environment on another planet.
