LaRouche Speaks to German Economists: The Key to Economics Is Human Scientific Discovery  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche addressed more than 100 former students of Prof. Wilhelm Hankel, at Frankfurt University on May 29.

LaRouche engaged in a two-hour presentation and seminar with Hankel’s students, who are now retired from their professional careers. Emphasizing the importance of the machine-tool principle for both the U.S. and German economies, LaRouche declared, “We’ve reached the point that the natural destiny of Germany, today, in particular, depends upon the development of a new approach, or a new form of approach, to Eurasian economy.”

The Empire Versus the Nations: Synarchism, Sport, and Iran  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The terrorist threat to the World Cup soccer matches “does not lie on what might be treated as a flat historical plane of space-time. It is a threat which is inherent in the specific situation of an acute, accelerating global monetary-financial crisis more serious than that of the 1928-1933 interval in Europe and the Americas. In times of crisis like these, desperation itself determines that certain otherwise improbable developments could happen soon, or not at all.”
