Venezuela Fiasco Lays Bare Policy Chaos in Washington  

by David Ramonet and Gretchen Small

Hugo Chávez’s ouster from Venezuela’s Presidency and return to power within 48 hours, wrecked the precious few possibilities for restoring national unity without civil war. Such civil war is now the order of the day not only in Venezuela, but across Ibero-America. With governments being shattered by their own servile adherence to globalization, the region is rapidly becoming polarized between two equally chaotic forces: the “leftist” FARC-allied forces which Chávez represents; and the “rightist” would-be imitators of Chile’s Augusto Pinochet, with their pretensions of imposing by force, the Mont Pelerin Society’s destruction of the nation-state.

Then and Now: Why Roosevelt’s Explosive 1933-45 Recovery Worked

by Richard Freeman

Part 1, commissioned by Lyndon LaRouche for his recently issued Presidential campaign Special Report, “Economics: The End of a Delusion,” this study of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s economic policies shows his firm grounding in the American System of political-economy founded by Alexander Hamilton. FDR’s steps to bring the United States out of the Great Depression, are the tried and true model we can look to today, in circumstances which are even more dire.

LaRouche Tells Bush: Do Not Repeat Bill Clinton’s Mistake!  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

If President Bush “is going to escape successfully from the ‘lame duck’ trap being set for him” by the Lieberman-Brzezinski cabal, LaRouche writes, he must tell himself: “‘Forget the election- campaign. Do what neither Senator Lieberman nor Al Gore would be capable of doing: Think like the kind of President our Constitution implies.’ Remember President Eisenhower and the Suez Crisis.”
