Interviews LaRouche

May 17, 2007 (EIRNS)—"American Economic Guru Forecasts Crisis in USA" is the headline over an interview with Lyndon LaRouche, posted on the widely read Russian web portal KM.ru today.

LaRouche was interviewed in Moscow May 15 by correspondent Tamara Miodeshevsky, and an audio-video version is expected to appear on the site soon. The interview includes essential points that LaRouche made in his several interviews and other discussions during a three-day visit to Moscow this week. Among those are the fact that the collapse of the dollar, as the world's reserve currency, will hit other countries hard, including major powers such as China, India, and Russia. As possible detonators of the explosion of the dollar-denominated bubble, LaRouche named a possible attack on Iran, and also Al Gore's fanatical campaign around "global warming." In these circumstances, LaRouche told KM.ru, "The USA must propose to, first and foremost, Russia, China, and India to reach agreement immediately on the creation of a new monetary system." He added, "Our approach, and our hopes, are linked, among other things, with Russian President Vladimir Putin's statements about Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his traditions."
