Science versus ‘new math’ witchcraft

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Record U.S. current account deficit signals disaster ahead

by Richard Freeman

The deficit of $149.4 billion for the first half of this year shows that America’s physical economy is no longer producing what the nation requires for its own existence—and for export abroad. Instead, we are relying on imports and the financial bubble: a foolish strategy that cannot be sustained.

Britain’s Cold War against FDR’s Grand Design: the East Asian theater, 1943-63

by Michael O. Billington

During World War II, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill argued repeatedly over the issue of what would become of the colonies of Britain and other European nations, after the war. Roosevelt demanded their independence, telling an apoplectic Churchill, “I can’t believe that we can fight a war against fascist slavery, and at the same time not work to free people all over the world from a backward colonial policy.” With FDR’s untimely death in April 1945, the British succeeded in reversing Roosevelt’s policy, until President Kennedy attempted to revive it.

Michael Billington’s report on the history of U.S., British, Indian, and Chinese policies in this region provides an urgently needed warning against the new quagmires and other follies into which the U.S. government is stumbling, once again, today.

Bipartisan majority passes Patients’ Bill of Rights

A version of President Clinton’s Patients’ Bill of Rights, called the Norwood-Dingell bill, was passed by the House, but the fight is far from over, and Americans must firmly insist that the General Welfare clause applies to all Americans, not just HMOs and their accountants.
