by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“This report is prompted by the immediacy of the extremely acute phase of international financial crises now looming for the interval of the U.S.A. national parties’ Presidential nominating conventions. It also has the more durable relevance of being an urgently needed introduction to the little known rudiments of a competent economic science. It serves, thus, as a much needed reeducation of those putatively leading economists, internationally, whose influence on policy-shaping of both governments and international private and public institutions had failed so miserably over the 1971-2008 interval, up to this present moment.”
