The Demise of an Importer of Last Resort  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan may soon be reenacting the flight from the pages of history, in his nightshirt, of the formerly all-powerful, terrifying Chief Justice of England, Lord Sir George Jeffreys. As for the U.S. economy, “it has not yet lost its nightshirt, but, it must be noted that the presently ongoing financial collapse appears to be bottomless.” On the pages of future, not-so-distant history, “this presently ongoing collapse of the overblown U.S. financial bubble, will be known as ‘The Demise of the Great Importer of Last Resort.’”

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Whatever the degree of truth and untruth in the CFR documents themselves about the role of China’s leadership in the events surrounding Tiananmen Square, the publication of this dubiously conveyed material, is clearly intended to signal war-like changes in the policies of the incoming U.S. Administration of President-elect GeorgeW. Bush.

Michael Billington  

Billington, an associate of Lyndon H.

Billington was sentenced to 77 years by the Commonwealth of Virginia, on trumped-up charges of “securities violations.”
