Volcker Triggers Global Interest-Rate War

by Mark Tritsch

Yet another hike in rates by the Federal Reserve chairman is being coupled with calls for international “deflation”–and the Europeans are forced to respond with their own interest rate increases. But unlike Volcker, credit controls are not what the continental powers have in mind as a “solution.”

Carter’s Deflationary Economics: A New Fascist World Order

by David Goldman

As the “Brandt Commission Commission” and the “Group of 30” come forth with their proposals to stamp-out national economic sovereignty in favor of worldwide IMF “conditionalities,” Jimmy Carter and Paul Volcker are preparing to bring the U.S. economy into conformity with such a fascist world order through credit controls and related measures that will stamp-out America’s industrial potential.

Europe Seeks Solution to Afghan Crisis

by Philip Golub

Following Chancellor Schmidt’s denunciation of Carter policy in the Afghan crisis as “incalculable,” European-U.S. relations are at their lowest point in memory. All of Secretary Vance’s overtures (and threats) to obtain coordinated action against the U.S.S.R. have been rejected out of hand. The French president has defined NATO as a defensive alliance-and nothing more. The West German and Austrian heads of state have pledged peace initiatives akin to the French. There are even peace-voices raised in Britain. If Carter is determined to make the international strategic crisis as dangerous as possible, Europe will go its own road.

Fraud in New Hampshire: A Case of 16,000 Votes

by Vin Berg

Thanks to the news media, most people outside New Hampshire didn’t even know he was running; yet Democratic candidate LaRouche probably finished second in the just concluded primary election there. But the votes disappeared. When the Council on Foreign Relations gets together with the boys down at the Aspen Institute, free elections are a thing of the past.

The Carter-Kennedy Health Plan: Legalized Murder

Massachusetts senior citizen Earle Spring was almost murdered, until a higher court enjoined a judge’s euthanasia order. The philosophy behind Carter and Kennedy health policies is that the elderly, veterans and anyone who gets too sick would be “better off if they die quickly.”
