LaRouche's Historic Webcast:
President Obama's Options

Lyndon LaRouche addressed an international Webcast Jan. 16, just days before the historic inauguration of President Barack Obama....

...To begin with, before getting into the questions and my response to them, I would remark that I'm focussed, at this point, in my direct remarks here, on the situation posed by the appearance of Paul Volcker, in the committee, the 30 Group, which recently met. No one knows exactly what President Obama is going to conclude on the issue of the international monetary-financial crisis. I haven't talked with him; and he has, of course, restrained himself on a number of matters, pending the time that he is the actual President, as opposed to speaking as a President-elect. So my concern is to try to clarify exactly what President Obama {must} consider, in making crucial decisions which bear upon international relations, particularly those affecting the world economy....

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."

  • LaRouche's Historic Webcast:
    President Obama's Options

    In his Jan. 16 pre-inauguration webcast, Lyndon LaRouche addressed what President Obama must consider as he makes his decisions on the international monetary-financial crisis. LaRouche said that when he forecast, on July 25, 2007, the imminent collapse of the international financial system, he was talking about the $1.4 quadrillion international financial derivatives bubble, which is still growing. Most of these financial claims are going to have to be wiped from the books in a bankruptcy reorganization, shutting down the derivatives market while the physical economy is put under protection, if the nations of the world are to survive. He said that the world banking system, in its present form, can not be saved. But we can save the physical economy, and then develop a credit system, as best understood by Alexander Hamilton. The responsibility of carrying this out for mankind, is what is confronting Obama now.


  • Lessons of History:
    London Is Pushing a Hundred Years War

    There have been 100 years of conflict in Southwest Asia since the advent of the imperial Sykes-Picot treaty. The Londonbased imperial financial empire is announcing that it intends to keep these conflicts going for another 100 years.
    • When America Fought the British Empire and Its Treacherous Sykes-Picot Treaty
      by Dean Andromidas

      The cause of the wars in Southwest Asia is the Anglo-French Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916, not anything internal to the region today. Forces in the United States understood the danger of that imperial system, and particularly, of British manipulations to grab the remnants of the dead Ottoman Empire, at the close of World War I. These patriotic Americans tried to block it—a story hitherto suppressed.
