We Need a Candidate In the Mold of FDR

On Sept. 6, Lyndon LaRouche delivered a harsh assessment of the profound failures of all of the Presidential candidates, and the overwhelming majority of Members of Congress to deal with the already onrushing financial collapse. ``In my view,'' LaRouche told associates, ``none of the present crop of Presidential candidates, including the latest entry in the race, are making any sense, when their words and actions are held up against the greatest onrushing financial crash in modern history. We need a new candidate, one in the mold of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to deal with this grave crisis. The country is in jeopardy, and without an FDR, we shall not survive.'' LaRouche added that, at age 85, he is too old to run for President, but the sad fact of the matter is that he is ``the only person on the scene qualified to be President in these times of dire crisis.''

The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism, by Stanislav M. Menshikov
March 23, 2007
—EIR News Service announced the publication of
The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism,
by Professor Stanislav M. Menshikov.

Translated from the Russian by Rachel Douglas, the book is an authoritative study of the Russian economy during the first 15 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union. The Preface, by EIR founder and contributing editor Lyndon LaRouche, titled, "Russia's Next Step," poses the need for U.S. policy-makers to study and grasp the "disease" presented in this book, since it represents "an economic global pandemic which we must all join to defeat."


We Need a Candidate in the Mold of FDR
Lyndon LaRouche has blunt words for the Presidential candidates and the Congress: 'I have been totally right about the systemic nature of this collapse. All of the Presidential candidates have failed miserably, to date, to meet the standards required to solve this grave national and global crisis.' He points out that 'we are not living under normal conditions,' and Congress is behaving like fools, worried 'that their money will be cut off if they act in the genuine interest of the American people.'


Congress 'Surprised' by Crash or Cowed by Hedge Fund Money?
Political leaders who know better— because they have been briefed extensively on the financial blowout by LaRouche's associates—are paralyzed by a combination of political cowardice, and an attachment to the hedge fund/ private equity fund gang represented by Felix Rohatyn and George Shultz.

Music & Statecraft: How Space Is Organized
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

What is it that most physicists, even otherwise capable ones, fail to understand about the idea of spacetime? Without a Riemannian conception of a non-Euclidean physical geometry, they fall short, as did the otherwise able Hermann Minkowski. To understand why, Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven prove very helpful! 'The crucial central feature of the greatly needed reform in the definition of scientific knowledge,' LaRouche writes, 'must be premised on the actual inseparability of competent physical scientific method from the great musical reform by Johann Sebastian Bach.'
