U.S. Deficit Out of Control, as Hyperinflation Looms

by Stephen Parsons

May’s deficit came in at an all-time record $53.35 billion, even though the Treasury received that month most of the balance of Gulf war tribute money from the erstwhile allies.


In our June 21 issue, on page 57, the great Russian icon painter Rublyov’s name was incorrectly spelled “Rubleyev.” On page 6 of the same issue, in the opening of Paolo Raimondi’s speech in Prague, “Friedrich List: The Economist of Industrial Capitalism,” the citation from List should open with the very first paragraph of the speech, and continue through the third paragraph. Due to an editorial error, the quote marks only opened with the third paragraph. The actual words of List begin with the phrase, “I shall confine my remarks to the refutation of the theory of Adam Smith.” We apologize for any confusion this error may have caused.

Did Unemployment Top 32 Million in U.S. in 1990?

by Laurence Hecht

The real levels of unemployment are far higher than the government and media report. President Bush and other officials may keep on using the fraudulent statistics, but they can no longer claim they didn’t know what the real numbers are.


Yugoslav Civil War Process Can Still Be Stopped

by Konstantin George

The West deliberately failed to foster a peaceful compromise this spring; but the die was really cast two years ago, when the IMF forced Belgrade to take Jeffrey Sachs as an economic advisor.

‘Surrender’ of Medellín Drug Lord Means the Moral Kidnapping of Colombia

by Robyn Quijano

The Court is expanding the power of police agencies over the individual, while limiting the power of the Federal courts to enforce the Constitution.
