Urgent Changes Needed in World Financial System  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Addressing a town meeting of the LaRouche PAC in Washington, D.C. on June 16, Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. underlined the essential role of the United States in saving the world from the onrushing financial-economic catastrophe. “We have made the most stupid mistakes imaginable during the past 30-odd years,” he said. “Recognizing that stupidity, which got us into all this mess, we should now decide we’re going to end it, and stop being stupid. And go back to being what we’re supposed to be: Being a United States, again. And being the United States to which the rest of the world looks up, as the one which they turn to for action, when they need somebody to step forward and take leadership, in providing the kind of action needed to save the world from Hell.”


Systemic Financial Crisis Creates Global Instability

by Nancy Spannaus

A swath of coup threats, destabilizations, and political hysteria is sweeping governments on all continents. This worldwide pattern is unprecedented in recent decades, and cannot be understood from the standpoint of the internal features of each nation. All of these crises are a reflection of the fact that the financial system is coming down, and that governments cannot deal with the crises they are facing.

Physical Principles

Man’s Original Creations  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“At a time when many in the U.S.A. and elsewhere are inclined to accept my assessments and proposals as important,” he writes, “they tend, nonetheless, to worry all the more; they fear, that in their accepting what they now tend to admire in my work, they might tend to overlook my possible errors on related other accounts. I am therefore obliged to attempt, once again, to make the entirety of my methods and world-outlook transparent to those increased numbers of influentials and others who consider it important to know the fuller implications of my outlook, beyond what is expressed as explicitly on the subject of economy.”
