Rhodes Dialogue of Civilizations:
Common Good Is Aim of Economic Activity
by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Oct. 16—The strength of the seventh annual conference of the World Public Forum in Rhodes, Greece, which met Oct. 8-12, lies in the fact that it emphasizes the concept of a ``Dialogue of Civilizations,'' for solving problems. Again, this year, it gathered over 500 academics, religious leaders, economists, politicians, artists, and journalists, from 60 countries, to discuss various subjects.

While last year's conference, also in October, was strongly impacted by the dramatic development of the financial crisis, just after the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the mood among many conference participants this year, was one of deep skepticism toward the official line, claiming that, ``the worst is over,'' and, of a certain foreboding that the main brunt of the crisis has yet to hit. The environment of the conference was in stark contrast to the reality of the strategic and historical situation....

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."

This Week's Cover Story

  • Rhodes Dialogue:
    Common Good Is Aim of Economic Activity

    Helga Zepp-LaRouche reports that at the seventh annual conference of the World Public Forum in Rhodes, Greece, the 500 people from 60 countries that were in attendance, were convinced that the global crisis is a result of the fact that so many decision-makers have reneged on their responsibility for the common good. The conference called for a new ethics in economic policy.
  • A Four-Power Agreement Can Create a New World Credit System
    Lyndon LaRouche's speech to the Rhodes Conference. He outlined an immediate, orderly solution to the global crisis, including putting the U.S. mortgage system under bankruptcy protection, and regulating the banking sector to protect it from speculation, thus laying the basis for re-creating the U.S. productive physical economy. This is a critical step to rebuilding the world economy, now collapsing under financier control.
  • New Alliances for a New World System
    Helga Zepp-LaRouche's speech to the conference. The beginnings of a mass strike against depression austerity conditions in the United States, she said, signify that a large segment of the population has lost any confidence in their government. This opens the possibility of a real change in the U.S., which could lead to conditions for an emergency conference, as proposed by Lyndon LaRouche, to replace the bankrupt monetary system with a new credit system.

  • Dump Bernanke Before He Destroys the Dollar!
    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is lying to U.S. creditors that the administration's policy is to keep the dollar strong, while the Fed keeps printing money to bail out the speculative financial sector. But the bailout attempt is killing the dollar as well as the physical economy.
  • LaRouche PAC-TV:
    Revive the Glass-Steagall Principle: First Step To Solve the Financial Crisis

    LaRouche political movement leader Phil Rubinstein gave this interview on Oct. 7 to LPAC-TV, on the reason for the establishment of the GlassSteagall Act during the first 100 days of the Franklin Roosevelt Administration. The repeal of Glass-Steagall played a key role in the present financial meltdown.
