Die EURO Lüge
Capitalism & Its Law
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

December 12, 2007
Germany's Professor Wilhelm Hankel is among a few of his nation's senior-ranking economists, and also other influentials, who led a rear-guard effort to prevent that disaster which was unleashed by Germany's consent to the replacement of its then sovereign currency, the Deutschemark. This attempted ruin of Germany was conducted by the instrument of a virtual post-modernist Tower of Babel, the strategic concoction known as the intrinsically very inflationary, presently collapsing Euro.
What the imposition of the Euro did, among its other leading, malicious effects for continental Europe, was to destroy the existing sovereign mechanisms by which Germany's national banking system, in particular, could defend itself against the rape which the introduction of the Euro has accomplished....

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."


Die Euro Lüge:
Capitalism & Its Law
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
Reflecting on a new book by Germany's Prof. Wilhelm Hankel, Die EURO Lüge und andere volkswirtschaftliche Märchen (The EURO lie and other economic fairytales), LaRouche analyzes the principled difference between the American System of political-economy, and the British money-oriented system. While he and Professor Hankel agree on many matters of political-economy, LaRouche notes, Hankel 'takes John Maynard Keynes' 1944 proposal to the Bretton Woods conference as his choice for the genesis of the post-1944 world monetary system; I, for my part, take a different standpoint, rooted in those notions of physical economy traced from Gottfried Leibniz's concept of physical economy which informed President Franklin Roosevelt's approach, rather than monetary economy.'


The Planned Killing of Benazir Bhutto
Bhutto's death was a step toward breaking up Pakistan, as the British oligarchy has long desired. She wanted to unify the country, and now, Ramtanu Maitra concludes, 'the Pakistani people must see to it that her death was not in vain.'

The System Is Dead;
'Now What? '

While the death of the system plays out before us in the financial press,' writes John Hoefle, 'the soap opera of falling dominoes and dueling pundits is but a cover for a much more profound battle: the battle over the nature of the system which will rise from the ashes.'
