A Matter of Principle: Alexander Hamilton’s Economics Created Our Constitution  

by Nancy Spannaus

Hamilton’s genius in economics showed itself early on, but reached full maturity in his three famous Reports to Congress, in which he asserted that the chief driver for economic development was the inventiveness, or power of the human mind, expressed through the increase in the use of “artificial labor” (i.e., machinery), and was enhanced by the development of infrastructure. These ideas, which stood in sharp contrast to the bestial “free-trade” ideas of Adam Smith, were informed by the political-economic ideas of Gottfried Leibniz. Faced with British determination to suppress any such development, the Founders knew they had to establish institutions that would support such independence and economic growth. The result was the U.S. Constitution.

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Every war the United States has ever been obliged to fight has been the fruit of the imperial policy of reign-and-ruin by the British Empire. The current British rape of Ireland is nothing but a naked reflection of the potential fatal error of subjecting the economies of nations to the syphilis known as monetarism.
