by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“The special circumstances presented to us by the presently onrushing, global breakdown-crisis of this world monetary-financial system, require that we quickly replace what are now clearly the hopelessly failed practices which had been lately taught as “economics” in our universities, governments, and comparable places.” A Socratic dialogue between LaRouche and the LaRouche Youth Movement.
