May 29—With all the chatter in the U.S. about “reopening the economy”, it seems no one asked, “What economy?” Perhaps with the confluence of crises — an escalating danger of war with China, the Coronavirus pandemic, and the threat of famine, to name a few — no one noticed that the post-industrial neoliberal economy is undergoing an accelerating systemic collapse.
Well, the collaborators of the late economist Lyndon LaRouche not only recognized the collapse underway, but are mobilizing for a plan to reverse it. In today’s webcast, Helga Zepp LaRouche counter-posed the optimism behind the new LaRouchePAC Report, “The LaRouche Plan to Reopen the U.S. Economy: The World Needs 1.5 Billion New Productive Jobs” to the understandable anxiety over the continuing lockdown. With the U.S. set to go back into space, with the scheduled launch of a rocket to take a crew to the International Space Station, it is time to recapture the optimism which has been under attack, by those controlling the presently doomed paradigm.
In a review of the crises, Mrs. LaRouche asks her audience to join her in building the New Paradigm, as envisioned by her late husband, starting with his program for a 4 Power agreement between the U.S., Russia, India and China, for a New Bretton Woods. There is a unique solution to the cries, she emphasized, based on the understanding of what her husband championed, the concept of “physical economy.”
