Why Paulson Blundered
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

August 8, 2008
Let us be very fair about U.S. Treasury Secretary Paulson. His chief fault is that he was virtually a certifiable ``Baby Boomer,'' who came into government circles during the administration of Richard Nixon, but soon left, in a gesture of prudence, to assume a safer career-opportunity in the so-called ``financial community.'' That is to emphasize, that he, like most Wall Street professionals of his age and younger, has had virtually no experience with a real economy. He is, essentially, like the rest of the Wall Street crowd, a gambler, not an economist.
In fact, the beliefs of the entire Wall Street and London financial community with whose defective, British ideology he and many others, especially the Baby-Boomers, are infected, are both insane, and also, implicitly unlawful under the specifications of the original intention of the U.S. Federal Constitution. Thus, notables such as Paulson and Bernanke ``just don't get it;'' they are, as Alice said, ``just a pack of cards,'' or, if you prefer to say it, ``just monopoly-money bureaucrats.''

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."

  • Zepp-LaRouche:
    Last Chance for a New Bretton Woods

    In her presentation to an EIR seminar in Wiesbaden, Germany, Helga Zepp-LaRouche declared that after the collapse of the housing and mortgage bubble, speculators moved into food, biofuel, and oil speculation, creating another bubble, which will also collapse. She said that only Lyndon LaRouche's three-point emergency solution to replace the bankrupt system can succeed. She reiterated her call to double world production to deal with the crisis created by the food speculators.
  • LaRouche:
    The U.S.A. Must Take the Lead

    Lyndon LaRouche, in a telephone address to the Wiesbaden seminar, underlined that the United States is looking at a situation like the Autumn of 1923 in Germany, when hyperinflation broke out. We are 'at a point of a general breakdown crisis,' he said. In the question period, he said that no part of the world can survive without 'a new international monetaryfinancial system.'
