In London and Washington, the U.S. dollar is considered finished as a reserve currency. That is a leading feature of a reorganization of the world financial system now underway, which includes controls on international lending much fiercer than the Bank of England, the Treasury or the Federal Reserve will confess to in public. But it is a project with which Europe must violently disagree-the European Monetary System is at stake.

Credit rationing for the LDCs.
by Lydia Schulman
Since Paul Volcker’s tight-credit measures went into effect, a pattern of industrial contraction verging toward collapse has confirmed EIR’s “Riemannian” predictions-and made fools (or liars) of other analysts.

Since Eisenhower’s election to a second term, the early primary in New Hampshire has been the key to a successful presidential campaign. Either the Democrat, or the Republican, who has won in New Hampshire, has gone all the way to the White House. This year looks like no exception, EIR’s analysts have found.

The major decision taken at the EC summit meeting in Dublin was to fight: France’s Giscard and Germany’s Schmidt did battle with Great Britain’s Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher came away with a bloody nose, and while her countrymen demand a “change in tactics,” the Europeans are wondering out loud why Britain is even a member of the European Community.

Whether the Washington and London planners of the “Iran crisis” succeed in getting what they want-first of all, a worldwide energy disaster-will significantly depend on whether the crisis succeeds in destabilizing Saudi Arabia, chief supplier of oil to Europe. Mosque takeovers, corruption scandals-everything is now being thrown against the Saudi monarchy.
