A Lesson from Wilhelm Furtwängler: The World’s Breakdown-Crisis Is Now  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

This report provides the context for, and introduces the three elements of a thoroughgoing exploration of what is properly termed the “Furtwängler Principle,” which immediately follow it. Furtwängler, he writes, opened “the proverbial ‘gates’ to the needed matters of physical science.”

The End of Britain’s ‘Bail-Out’  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“Without an immediate installation, by political force of leading nations, of a trans-Atlantic equivalent of President Franklin Roosevelt’s original ‘Glass-Steagall’ law, the nations of western and central Europe (and others) will become virtually ‘far worse than merely financially extinct’ during the presently onrushing collapse already underway,” LaRouche writes.

by Harley Schlanger

LaRouche Democrat Kesha Rogers’ victory in the Democratic primary for Congress in Texas, and Diane Sare’s campaign in New Jersey, combined with the multi-billion-dollar derivatives loss by JPMorgan Chase, and the collapse of the banks of the Eurozone, have put the issue of restoring Glass-Steagall back on the front burner for the U.S. Congress.
