Forecasts: Statisticians Who Failed Today  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“There is, presently, in fact, an accelerating and spreading of waves of crises with the characteristic quality of a threatened, or even actually inprogress, breakdown-crisis of a nation,” Lyndon LaRouche writes, “a wave presently sweeping throughout the trans-Atlantic world, and, also, threatening to explode, or perhaps even in process of exploding among nations of the Asian regions.” We are virtually “inches away,” he cautions, from a detructive force which even the great nations of Asia could not withstand.

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“Quaddafy Duck, is going down,” writes LaRouche, but, do not overlook the many other cases of those in U.S. Republican Party ranks, who, like Wisconsin’s Governor Walker, are now in the process of becoming about as unpopular with their states’ citizens, and are about as secure in their own futures, as was Louis XVI, after the storming of the Bastille.

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Ordinary citizens, in nations throughout the world, share the knowledge that they have no future within the Ancien Régime, from North Africa to the U.S.A.

‘World Food Crisis’ a Direct Product of the British Empire  

by Mercia Merry Baker

Combined with hyper-speculation in food and related commodities, there is a related feature of the food crisis to be eliminated: the now-extreme globalization of the food chain. This has come about under the control of a few commodities cartels, operating above and against national governments, and the interests of their populations.

The Specter of Egypt Haunts Mexico Food Crisis

Will Americans Heed LaRouche To Win This Mass Strike?

by Nancy Spannaus

The slate of six LaRouche Democrats running for Congress has put out a clarion call around the theme, “The Global Mass Strike Demands Glass-Steagall.” Yet, as long as Obama remains in the White House, even as a figurehead, he has the capability of blocking the implementation of Glass-Steagall.

Dialogue with LaRouche: The Science Behind Glass-Steagall  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

On Feb. 10, as extraordinary events were unfolding in Egypt, Lyndon LaRouche addressed a private gathering of approximately 75 individuals, gathered in New York City. The gathering included international representatives from Russia, China, India, Egypt, and Ireland. They were joined by a large group of leading American economists from California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, most of whom comprise what has been referred to as the greater Stanford Group.

LaRouche was joined by Sky Shields, leader of the “Basement Team” of scientific researchers.
