Balkan nations battle monetarist bureaucrats

by Rainer Apel

The International Monetary Fund admits that it has no intention of helping to reconstruct the ravaged nations of the Balkans. And even if they wanted to, the world’s financial institutions are bankrupt. Balkan leaders are therefore gravitating toward LaRouche’s alternative approach of junking the IMF system entirely.

Can you, personally, survive this bust?  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

That the oligarchs are looting their own institutions, should awaken you credit-card slaves from your dreaming. “In other words,” writes LaRouche, “that means, ‘Will I, my family, and our government, come out of this mess with the political power needed to create the needed new money-system, to replace the hopelessly bankrupt old one, the instant the crash of the present world system occurs?’ People who ask the latter question, are sane; those who ask, ‘Then, where do I invest my money?’ are probably not sane—at least, not at the present moment; we hope their mental health might be improved by aid of what I report here.”

Barak secures U.S. support for new peace offensive

by William Jones and Dean Andromidas

For once, the British-influenced U.S. State Department was not permitted to interfere with President Clinton’s effort to work with Israel’s newly elected President to re-start the peace process that had been destroyed by Barak’s predecessor Netanyahu. But will Clinton and Barak have the courage to implement the crucial economic annexes of the Oslo Accord?
