Japan on Eve of FAO Meet:
Let's Double Rice for Africa!
by Ramtanu Maitra

Less than a week before the FAO's June 3-5 high-level conference on World Food Security and Global Challenges in Rome, Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda addressed the Fourth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD IV), in Japan's port city Yokohama. With 52 African nations represented at the gathering, Fukuda pledged Japan's expertise to bring about a ``Green Revolution'' in Africa to make the continent food secure.

``As Africa seeks to achieve its own Green Revolution, I would like to put out a call for action, aiming to double the current rice production output of 14 million tons, over the next ten years,'' the Japanese prime minister said.

Japan's initiative to become involved in Africa to eradicate that food-short continent's hunger, and make it food-secure, poses a stiff challenge to the centuries-old policies imposed by the Anglo-European colonial powers....

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."

This Week's Cover

Food Policy

  • LaRouche PAC Memorandum:
    Kill the WTO; Double Food Production

    This memorandum features an analysis of total food production from 1970 to 2007, showing the severe inadequacy of food output, given population growth, and projects that were online that would have met today's food requirements had they been built. Included is a developed strategy for selfsufficiency, for immediately averting today's threat of starvation, and for a long-term alliance among Russia, China, India, and the United States.


  • More on Insight:
    Science & the Making of History

    Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., in a continuing series of reports, emphasizes the importance of the work on science by the LaRouche Youth Movement 'as the necessary foundation and guide for a competent study of the history of European civilization.' Citing his own insight, over a lifetime, into fundamental issues of science, he writes: 'In this present report, I continue along that pathway, from its inferred, ancient origins, toward its own importance for a competent grasp, today, of that series of great crises of globally extended development of modern European civilization, which is to be traced from the work of Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa's founding of modern science, into the time of the accelerating global economic breakdown-crisis, now in an advanced stage.'
