LaRouche On The Record:
A New, Just, International Economic Order

September 2014

Lyndon LaRouche has provided the intellectual leadership for over four decades in the fight for a new international economic order.

For over four decades, American physical economist Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. has provided the intellectual and political leadership in the fight for a new international economic order for the planet, for the purpose of ending the historic imperial control of monetarism and unleashing mankind's creative powers as a species. We have divided this lengthy history into four section, by decade, and we include links from the both text and the graphics to the original documents, for you to study.

The profound impact of LaRouche's intellectual leadership is clearly reflected in the current actions being taken by the BRICS nations and others to create a new global financial architecture and strategic alliance among nations, with the recent establishment of the New Development Bank (NDB) and related developments.

A partial timeline of LaRouche's role in leading the fight for a new international economic order is chronicled below:

2005: LaRouche in Berlin Details 'New Westphalian' World Economic Order

At an EIR-sponsored seminar in Berlin, Germany involving leading Russian, Chinese, Indian, American, and European policy makers, Lyndon and Helga LaRouche elaborate the 'Westphalian' principles which must serve as the foundation for a new international order between states. LaRouche authors two discussion documents for conference, titled "Toward a Second Treaty of Westphalia: The Coming Eurasian World" [PDF] and "The Dialogue of Eurasian Civilizations: Earth's Next Fifty Years" [PDF].

A lengthy document authored by Lyndon LaRouche in 2005 for an international seminar in Berlin is published in book-form under the title 'Earth's Next Fifty Years.'

During the dialogue at the conference, Lyndon LaRouche invoked the fight for a new economic order, saying, "go back to 1976 to this experience, where the Non-Aligned nations group, in majority on the initiative of India, actually, adopted a resolution on a just new world economic order." In his speech titled "We Need a New Treaty of Westphalia" [PDF], LaRouche declares that the time for that new international order has come: "We're going into either a period of chaos, which could be a Dark Age, or we're going into a period in which the assumptions of relations among states, especially respecting economic and related kinds of relations, will be changed forever... The decision is on the table: are we going to create a new monetary system, which presumes that a concert of nation-states, sovereign nation-states, will put the existing IMF system into bankruptcy receivership? In other words, governments would take these banking institutions into receivership and manage these bankrupt entities, in such a way as to promote the general welfare."

During the seminar, Helga Zepp-LaRouche delivers a speech titled "Society Needs a New Paradigm Worthy of the Dignity of Man" [PDF], in which she elaborates the history of LaRouche's role in leading the fight for a new international economic order and asserts the urgent need to "put the new world economic order back on the agenda," saying: "In 1971, when Nixon decoupled the dollar from gold, creating the private banking power over money creation in the offshore markets, LaRouche said, this will lead to a new depression, the new danger of fascism, and the danger of a collapse of society-or, the just new world economic order... In 1975, Mr. LaRouche went to Iraq, to participate in the celebrations of the Ba'ath Party. And he came back, and he made for the first time, the proposal to have the International Development Bank, as an instrument to replace the IMF, to be the vehicle for a $400 billion credit per year for clearly defined development projects. This idea, we then circulated for one year, among 85 countries, the countries of the Non-Aligned Movement. Many of these countries did feasibility studies, with the idea of Mr. LaRouche's work. Then, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in '76, eighty-five nations accepted the idea of a new world economic order... Then, the next major thing was when LaRouche got the cooperation of López Portillo, to make a proposal-again, to have a new world economic order. This time coming from a debtors' cartel, from the Latin American debtor countries: Mexico, Brazil, Argentina...

Helga Zepp-LaRouche tells a seminar of international policy makers gathered in Berlin, Germany: 'This is now the opportunity to put the idea of a just new world economic order back on the agenda!'

Helga LaRouche traces this history through the collapse of, first, the Soviet Union and then the collapse of the free-market 'globalization' system, asserting: "This is now the opportunity to put the idea of a just new world economic order, back on the agenda. If you want to have a just new world economic order, it's not a technocratic question; it's not only a question of a new financial system, a new economic system: It's a question of a passionate idea, of the idea of the international community of people.... So, I think we need to have the discussion on this level, and put the new world economic order, back on the agenda."

Helga Zepp-LaRouche Renews Calls for New Bretton Woods

Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche issues an international call for a New Bretton Woods in 2005.

In April 2005, the president and founder of the Schiller Institute, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, renews the call for a New Bretton Woods, issuing an international petition signed by leading elected officials and government figure, including numerous members of the Italian Parliament who had sponsored resolutions in support of the New Bretton Woods, as well economists from several western and central European countries. The petition states:
The following measures must be implemented if we are to alter the mistaken course that we have followed since President Nixon did away with fixed exchange-rates in 1971, a course that has led to the present upsurge of a grotesque and predatory form of capitalism, thanks to unchecked 'globalization' after the fall of the U.S.S.R. The New Bretton Woods Conference shall decide as follows -
1. There shall immediately be re-established fixed exchange rates
2. A treaty shall be enacted between governments, forbidding speculation in derivative products.
3. The debt shall either be cancelled, or reorganized.
4. New credit lines shall be opened by the State, to create full employment by investing in critical infrastructure and technological innovation.
5. The building of the Eurasian Land-Bridge, as the keystone for rebuilding the world economy, is the vision that will bring about not only a new economic miracle, but peace in the 21st Century.
6. A new Peace of Westphalia will ensure that for no less than the coming half-century, raw materials shall be extracted and processed for the benefit of every nation on this planet.
We, the undersigned, believe that so-called 'globalization,' this predatory form of capitalism, has shown itself beyond all doubt to be bankrupt on every front. It is Man who must stand at the center of the economy, and accordingly, the economy must serve the common weal. The purpose of a new world economic order is to guarantee the inalienable rights of Man.

Argentine Foreign Minister Calls For New Bretton Woods at United Nations

On September 14, 2005, during a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, the Foreign Minister of Argentina Rafael Bielsa calls for: " international conference of heads of state, similar to the 1944 Bretton Woods conference, to rebuild a more just global monetary and financial architecture which eliminates financial bubbles and concentrates on supporting the real economy."

This speech, prepared in direct coordination with the Argentine president Nestor Kirchner, comes in the wake of Argentina's victory over the international vulture funds, forcing them to renegotiate Argentina's debt and accept a vast write-down of the face value of their claims against Argentina. Refusing to give into the threats and 'conditionalities' of the IMF, Argentine President Nestor Kirchner delivered a speech in April in which he declared:

President of Argentina Nestor Kirchner declares: 'Argentina is prepared to work actively and constructively on behalf of a new world economic order.'

"There is life after the IMF, and it's a very good life. And remember, being in the embrace of the IMF isn't exactly like being in heaven. I received an Argentina devastated by an economic program supported by the International Monetary Fund: The placing of private interests over the general interest was the expression of a specific model of society which led to generalized poverty, uncertainty, isolation, and impoverishment of life at all levels... "As it operates today, the IMF has no future, and the developed world has to understand this. Argentina is prepared to work actively and constructively on behalf of a new world economic order."

2006: Argentine President Kirchner Calls for New Financial Architecture at UN

President of Argentina Nestor Kirchner calls for a new international financial architecture before the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 2006.

Nestor Kirchner, the President of Argentina, delivers a speech before the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 2006, in which he calls for a "new financial architecture" to replace the failed and destructive IMF system. Denouncing the violation of national sovereignty and prevention of economic development that the IMF 'conditionalities' regime represents, Kirchner declares: "There is sufficient empirical evidence to demonstrate that the participation of the international financial organizations in the promotion of development of poorer nations has not been successful, and in many cases, with their conditionalities, they have acted in a contrary sense, preventing development... That is why, together with the majority of countries, we support the reform of the international financial architecture, such that it will lead to the progress of the poorest nations. In noting the scant willingness of these international financial organizations to produce a real change in their policies, we deem it necessary to make this change, and to consider the creation of new international financial instruments that will permit the building of development projects to combat poverty and hunger in the world and to provide real options for advancement."

2007: International Conference in Moscow Demands Bering Strait Tunnel

Proceedings of Moscow conference on the Bering Strait Tunnel project are published in both Russian and English, including the prepared text of Lyndon LaRouche's speech.

Lyndon LaRouche is invited to participate in a conference on April 24, 2007 in Moscow, Russia called "Megaprojects of Russia's East: A Transcontinental Eurasia-America Transport Link via the Bering Strait" organized by the Russian Academy of Sciences Council for the Study of Productive Forces (SOPS), in conjunction with the Russian Ministry of Economic Development and Trade (MERT), the Russian Ministry of Transport, the state-owned company Russian Railroads, and several regional governments in Siberia and the Russian Far East. Lyndon LaRouche speech, prepared and submitted to the conference, is titled "The World's Political Map Changes: Mendelyev Would Have Agreed" [PDF] in which he states: "This onrushing collapse of the world's presently hyperinflated, disintegrating world monetary-financial system, requires early concerted emergency action by responsible leading nations... These must include the U.S.A., Russia, China, and India, as the rallying-point for a new, spreading partnership among perfectly sovereign nation-state economies. In such cooperation, the development of a great network of modern successors to old forms of rail transport, must be spread across continental Eurasia, and across the Bering Strait into the Americas... The bridging of the Bering Strait becomes, thus, now, the navel of a new birth of a new world economy."

LaRouche Invited to Moscow as Featured Guest of Academy of Sciences

Lydnon LaRouche and Stanislav Menshikov converse during a celebration in Moscow sponsored by the Academy of Sciences.

Lyndon LaRouche is invited to Moscow to attend a celebration sponsored by the Russian Academy of Science of the 80th birthday of Stanislav Mikhailovich Menshikov, a prominent Russian economist. The celebration is also attended by Academician Alexander Granberg who sponsored the Bering Strait forum earlier in the year, and Dr. Sergei Glazyev, also a member of the Academy of Sciences. Lyndon LaRouche makes remarks to the gathering, in which he says: "The United States must change its behavior, by approaching Russia, China, and India, in order to create a new order of relations in the world, bringing all the smaller nations in to cooperate with them. I think we can do it: We can change history."

During his visit to Moscow, LaRouche is interviewed by several Russian media, both television and print, including by economist Mikhail Khazin [PDF] during which LaRouche reviews the history of his role in shaping the economic policy relations between the United States and Russia:

Lyndon LaRouche was interviewed by numerous Russian-language media during his trip to Moscow.

"From 1994 on, since I was visiting Russia, in that period, my concern, which I shared with many of my Russian friends in high positions, was to try to get an understanding with President Clinton, and people in Russia. So, some of the key people here in Russia organized a meeting which I addressed in Moscow. They were prepared, through me, because they knew my connection to Clinton, to open a new channel of economic understanding and cooperation with the United States. [Academician Gennadi] Osipov was one of the leaders of that group, to organize it. The former Prime Minister, [Valentin] Pavlov, was part of it. But the Vice President of the United States, Al Gore, was a close friend of Yeltsin, and they put pressure on Clinton not to do it. Finally, in 1998, in August and September, Clinton recognized I had been right... We must have a dialogue between Russia and the United States, involving other countries, like China, India, and so on, who understand that we believe the same thing about the present world crisis, and can understand what we must do for the next 50 years."

Russian President Calls for 'New International Economic Architecture'

Russian President Vladimir Putin calls for a 'new international architecture of economic relations' at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 10, 2007.

At the annual gathering in Russia for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 10, 2007, attended by almost 10,000 people from over 65 nations (including nine Presidents, four Premiers, 44 ministers, and 40 ambassadors), Russian President Vladimir Putin issues a call for a "new international architecture of economic relations" between nations. Putin highlights the increasingly dominant role being played by the developing countries in the world economy, and states that the existing international financial organizations are in need of "serious restructuring" and that the former paradigm of international economic relations has become archaic.

President Putin declares: "If we want to achieve sustainable development we need to create a new architecture of international economic relations based on trust and mutually beneficial integration. We cannot ignore the importance of healthy competition, but at the same time, we need to move towards forming common and interdependent interests and ties... The new architecture of economic relations implies a principally new approach to the work of international organizations."

Lyndon LaRouche Forecasts the Financial Crash of 2007

Lyndon LaRouche forecasts the financial crisis of 2007 during a public webcast in Washington DC on July 25, 2007.

On July 25, 2007, during an international webcast in Washington DC, Lyndon LaRouche went on record stating that the banking system had reached the point where a catastrophic collapse could no longer be avoided and must be expected to occur in the immediate future. Three days later, Bear Stearns went under, triggering a chain reaction crisis throughout the entire global financial system.

Lyndon LaRouche stated: "There is no possibility of a non-collapse of the present financial system-none! It's finished, now! The present financial system can not continue to exist under any circumstances, under any Presidency, under any leadership, or any leadership of nations. Only a fundamental and sudden change in the world monetary financial system will prevent a general, immediate chain reaction type of collapse. At what speed we don't know, but it will go on, and it will be unstoppable. And the longer it goes on before coming to an end, the worse things will get."

Helga LaRouche: Landbridge Is The Cornerstone of New Economic Order

Lyndon and Helga LaRouche are joined by Prof. Stanislav Menshikov of the Russian Academy of Sciences at a Schiller Institute conference in Germany.

The Schiller Institute sponsors a conference in Kiedrich, Germany on September 14-15 attended by 350 people from 40 nations, including a prominent delegation of Russian academicians and political figures, including Prof. Stanislav Menshikov of the Russian Academy of Sciences; Victor Razbegin, deputy chairman of the Council for the Study of Productive Forces (SOPS); and Dr. Sergei Cherkasov and Academician Dmitri Rundqvist, both of the Vernadsky State Geological Museum. Lyndon LaRouche delivers the keynote to conference, calling for an urgent bankruptcy reorganization of the world financial system:

"The only peaceful remedy for the present world situation, today, would be by actions which, in effect, place the present world monetary-financial system into a process of reorganization of bankruptcy; and a return to a design consistent with what U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt had intended for the Bretton Woods System, had he lived. No possible solution for this crisis exists within the structures of the present world financial-monetary system. Only a political reform of the world system, as it must be promoted by the initiative of a relevant leading group of powerful nation-states, could turn the tide of horror now gripping the fate of this planet as a whole."

Helga Zepp-LaRouche tells an international conference in Germany: 'The new world economic order is our life's work, and it is now the time to implement it.'

Helga LaRouche addresses the conference and states that the gathering is intended to be a creation of a global forum of dialogue for the purpose of achieving a just new world economic order:

"This conference is supposed to be the beginning of a worldwide dialogue, and forum, of people who want to reconstruct the world; of putting together the combination of people who want to fight for the old idea, which used to be the agenda, for example, of the Non-Aligned Movement, to build a just new world economic order. And the key to this is building the Eurasian Land-Bridge, which, from the beginning, never was meant to be limited to Eurasia, but the cornerstone of a global reconstruction program... We have reached a situation where either we establish a new world economic order based on the Eurasian Land-Bridge, and go for global reconstruction, or we will plunge into a dark age... The question of the new world economic order has been our life's work, and it is now the time to implement it.

2008: Helga LaRouche In Rhodes: A New Westphalian World Economic Order

Helga Zepp-LaRouche was among the participants invited to address the 2008 World Public Forum 'Dialogue of Civilizations' conference held in Rhodes.

During the week of October 9-13, 2008, Helga Zepp-LaRouche was invited to participate as a keynote speaker at the Sixth General Meeting of the World Public Forum's 'Dialogue of Civilizations' conference, held in Rhodes, with more than 700 people from 70 countries attending. The World Public Forum was founded and chaired by Vladimir Yakunin, chairman of Russian Railways, and brings together political, religious, and intellectual leaders from around the globe for annual conferences. Helga LaRouche's speech is titled "For a New World Economic Order in the Tradition of the Peace of Westphalia" [PDF] in which she states:

"An emergency conference, modelled on the Bretton Woods Conference of 1944, has long been proposed by Lyndon LaRouche... In order for this new system to have credibility and integrity, the initiating powers-the U.S.A., Russia, China, and India-have to build the core of a representative group of nations which, in the tradition and spirit of the Treaty of the Peace of Westphalia, decide on a multicultural and multinational credit system, even while the current monetary and financial system is put through an orderly bankruptcy process.... The most important principle of the Westphalia Treaty, upon which international human rights are based, was the idea that, in the interest of peace, all foreign policy must be oriented to the "advantage of the other."

Lyndon LaRouche Promotes Four Power Alliance in New Delhi, India

Lyndon LaRouche addresses a seminar in New Delhi sponsored by the Forum for Strategic Security Studies.

Both Lyndon and Helga LaRouche attend a seminar in New Delhi, India in December 2008, sponsored by the Forum for Strategic Security Studies (FSSS), a leading military think tank, in addition to participating in extensive private meetings on the subject of organizing a Four Powers alliance between India, China, Russia, and the United States to lead in creating a new global political and economic order [PDF]. LaRouche states in his speech to the forum: "There are four nations on this planet, which are significantly large and important enough, that they could, if willing, make a decision which would eventually change the direction of affairs on the planet... How do we expand the capacity for carrying the world's population in a stable, growing way, which can't be done under the present monetary syste? If these four nations agree to form a nucleus, in recognition of defense against this crisis, then we can change the world... These four governments, the United States, India, Russia, China, can sponsor the idea of an agreement to deal with this particular crisi by creating a new credit system to replace the present bankrupt monetary system.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche: 'We Need A New World Economic Order, Now!'

A renewed call from Helga Zepp-LaRouche, demanding a New World Economic Order which 'must guarantee the inalienable rights of all men on this planet.'

Helga LaRouche issues a renewed call for a new international economic order [PDF], specifying eight specific points which must serve as the foundation for such a new system:

An emergency conference must be called, at the level of heads of state, to establish a new financial architecture. This emergency conference for a New Bretton Woods must resolve that:
1. The present world financial system must be declared hopelessly bankrupt, and replaced by a new one.
2. It must promptly set up a fixed-exchange-rate monetary system, so that long-term investments in international infrastructure projects are possible, under predictable conditions.
3. Derivatives speculation and speculation in food, energy, and raw materials must be banned by treaty among governments.
4. There must be an immediate reorganization, including, for example, cancellation of debts.
5. In a New Deal for the world economy, in the tradition of Alexander Hamilton, Friedrich List, Henry Carey, and FDR, new credit lines must be made available for investments in basic infrastructure and technological renovation.
6. Building the Eurasian Land-Bridge, as the core project for reconstruction of the world economy, is therefore the vision that can not only bring a new economic miracle, but also bring peace to the 21st Century.
7. Food production must be doubled worldwide in the coming years
8. A new "Peace of Westphalia" must, within at least 50 years, secure the availability and development of raw materials for all nations on this planet.
We maintain that the system of globalization, with its brutal, predatory capitalism, is economically, financially and morally wrecked. Instead, man must be placed at the center again, and the economy must serve the common good. The new world economic order must guarantee the inalienable rights of all men on this planet.

2009: LaRouche: Banking Reorganization According to Glass-Steagall Standard

In October 2009, Lyndon LaRouche outlines a program for bankruptcy reorganization of the financial system [PDF], specifying that, through the application of the "Glass-Steagall standard," fictitious values of speculative debt will be distinguished from productive debt with legitimate economic value. LaRouche asserts that the speculative debt must not be honored or bailed out, while the legitimate productive debt must be protected and reorganized as was done by Alexander Hamilton.

LaRouche calls for the application of the Glass-Steagall standard for a bankruptcy reorganization of the financial system.

LaRouche declares:"What is required is to put all regular commercial banks through reorganization in bankruptcy... The accounts which are in commercial banks will be put into reorganization in bankruptcy, such that those accounts which correspond to a Glass-Steagall standard will receive full protection and will be assigned protection under the category of a Glass-Steagall qualified account. These banks, which we will clean up in that way, have to be under bankruptcy protection, even though they've been purged of this garbage... We're going to put the commercial banking system through a Glass-Steagall-standard reorganization; we're going to use the end-product of that reorganization to reestablish the full support of the Federal system, as a credit system, not a monetary system."

Lyndon LaRouche Attends World Public Forum in Rhodes, Greece

Lyndon and Helga LaRouche are both invited to attend the seventh annual conference of the World Public Forum in Rhodes, Greece, attended by over 500 academics, religious leaders, economists, politicians, artists, and journalists, from 60 countries. Lyndon LaRouche gives an address titled "A Four-Power Agreement Can Create a New World Credit System" [PDF] in which he states:

Lyndon LaRouche delivers address to a conference in Rhodes, Greece of the World Public Forum in October 2009.

"The task is for Russia, and the United States, and China, and India, to agree, as a group of countries, to initiate and force a reorganization of the world financial and credit system, under those conditions, with long-term agreements, of the same type that Franklin Roosevelt had uttered before his death... The United States, Russia, China, and India, must become a bloc of countries, which each have different characteristics, but if they recognize among themselves, that they have a common interest, they will adapt to each other and respect each other's different characteristics. The result of this, will be the elimination of the monetary system of the world that has been dominating European civilization since the Peloponnesian War."

Helga Zepp-LaRouche's speech is titled "New Alliances for a New World System" [PDF], which she concludes by saying:

Helga LaRouche speaks at 'Dialogue of Civilizations' conference in Rhodes, Greece of the World Public Forum in October 2009.

"We must open a new era of humanity, one in which oligarchical and imperial designs have been defeated once and for all, replaced with an alliance of republics which are perfectly sovereign, yet, which are united through the higher interest of mankind as a whole. It is possible to bring this about, but it will require interventions by courageous individuals who are fired by a passionate love for mankind."

2010: LaRouche: 'A Revolutionary Change in International Financial Policy'

At a private seminar in Washington DC, attended by numerous representatives of the international diplomatic community, Lyndon LaRouche delivers a speech [PDF] in which he calls for a "revolutionary change" in the economic system of the planet to "eliminate the tyranny of international finance." LaRouche states:

"We need a revolutionary change in international monetary financial policy. We can not live on the kind of trends in economic policy, financial policy, which have ruled the United States since October 1987. We have to go back to a fixed-exchange-rate system of the type that Franklin Roosevelt intended... We must eliminate the tyranny of international finance, which preys upon and sucks the blood of mankind now. The authority for creation of credit lies with the sovereign nation-states. But the sovereign nation-states must have agreements among themselves, which are fixed-exchange-rate agreements..."

"This is the worst crisis in modern history; it's also the greatest opportunity in modern history, and it depends upon consciousness and will to do some simple things in terms of policy which will fix it. And bring the trans-Atlantic region and the trans-Pacific region into harmony with each other."

2012: BRICS Leaders Demand New International Financial Architecture

Presidents Dilma Rousseff, Dimitri Medvedev, Manmohan Singh, Hu Jintao, and Jacob Zuma all meet for the BRICS Summit in New Delhi in March 2012 and issue a call for a 'new just international financial architecture.'

At their fourth summit in New Delhi on March 29, 2012, the leaders of the BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa - issue a statement calling for "a more representative international financial architecture, and the establishment and improvement of a just international monetary system that can serve the interests of all countries and support the development of emerging and developing economies."

The New Delhi Declaration of the BRICS announces: "We have considered the possibility of setting up a new Development Bank for mobilizing resources for infrastructure in BRICS and other emerging economies and developing countries. We direct our Finance Ministers to examine the feasibility and viability of such an initiative, set up a joint working group for further study, and report back to us by the next Summit."

EIR Publishes Special Report: 'There Is Life After The Euro!'

Special Report published by EIR titled: 'There Is Life After The Euro: An Economic Miracle for Southern Europe & the Mediterranean' detailing a reconstruction plan for the nations of the European continent.

Executive Intelligence Review publishes a special report titled "There Is Life After The Euro: Economic Miracle For Southern Europe & Mediterranean" [PDF] which details the development programs which could be built to reconstruct Europe if the European nations were to free themselves from the collapsing Euro system. In the introduction to the report, Helga Zepp-LaRouche says:

"The euro system, and the entire trans-Atlantic financial system, are in the process of total disintegration... A solution does exist. That solution, however, is absolutely impossible within our current system. The hopelessly bankrupt system of globalization, and today's casino economy, must be replaced by a credit system that is oriented exclusively toward future investment into the real economy, with high energy-flux densities. We must return to national currencies, fixed exchange rates, and an economic reconstruction program for Southern Europe, the Mediterranean region, and the African continent...

"By implementing a two-tier banking system in the exact tradition of the Glass-Steagall standard established by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933, commercial banks would be put under state protection as a first step, while the entire array of 'creative financial instruments' and derivatives contracts would have to be struck from the books. A moratorium must be declared on all state debt, and the portion of indebtedness stemming from financing all sorts of bailout measures, would likewise be wiped from the books."


Schiller Institute Launches 'New Paradigm for Civilization' Conferences

In November 2012, Helga Zepp-LaRouche addresses the first in a series of 'New Paradigm for Civilization' conferences sponsored by the Schiller Institute.

The Schiller Institute sponsors a conference in November 2012 near Frankfurt, Germany titled 'A New Paradigm for Civilization' as the first in a series of international conferences [VIDEO]. The conference is attended by over 300 participants from 25 countries in Europe, and Middle East, Asia, and the United States. Helga Zepp-LaRouche introduces the new EIR report 'There Is Life After The Euro' and stresses that only by adopting a development program in the common interests of mankind can global war be averted.

See Website: Forum For A New Paradigm

Lyndon LaRouche's remarks to the conference [PDF] feature the specific steps that must be taken to reorganize the bankrupt financial system: "1. The first of the three essential preconditions for recovery is that the relevant, combined leading nations of both the United States and the leading parts of Eurasia, must immediately enact the Glass-Steagall law...
2. A recovery of the economy of the relevant nations depends upon the actual creation of a set of systems based on the principle of national credit, among respective nations. This means that the future investments must be those rightly deemed physically worthy of the credit which is uttered under the authority provided by the credit systems of the respective sovereign nations...
3. It must be recognized, that it is the increase of physical wealth which must be made practicable by the respective nations' extension of systems of public credit. The future wealth of nations and of the enterprises must warrant the extension of national credit, within and among cooperating nations. That economic policy shall serve for both the public and private investment, in the creation of that which will exist only through the means of the productive future of the nation and mankind in general."

2013: LaRouche Interviewed In Chinese Press: 'Change The Direction of History'

Lyndon LaRouche is interviewed by Xinhua, the official news agency of the People's Republic of China, on July 27, 2013 [PDF]. During the interview, the interviewer Zhang Mian states "as an economist, you've committed yourself to establish a new world economic order" and asks him what is required to accomplish this goal. LaRouche replies:

"We have to create a new world, a new world which is based on a commitment to high technology, because only by increasing the technological potential of the nations of the planet, can we possibly work our way out of this problem. That could be done. China is potentially a very important part of this new world system. We can create an agreement among leading nations of the world, to change the general direction of the history of this planet in modern times - and China is a key nation in this whole process... The important thing is to turn conflict into a source of alliances, on this issue. And that issue will only work if we are actually promoting technologically progressive improvements in productivity."

On his way to a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Chinese President Xi Jingping visits Kazakhstan on September 7, 2013 and announces his policy to push the rapid development of a 'New Silk Road Economic Belt' stretching "from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea." While speaking at Nazarbayev University in Astana, President Xi states: "To forge closer economic ties, deepen cooperation and expand development in the Euro-Asia region, we should take an innovative approach and jointly build an 'economic belt' along the Silk Road. This will be a great undertaking benefitting the people of all countries along the route... We must expand the development of Eurasia, creating an economic belt along the Silk Road. China and the Central Asian countries are at a crucial stage; we need a broader vision for cooperation. The peoples of this ancient Silk Road together can compose a wonderful new chapter in the much-told story. Now is a golden opportunity for development."

Helga LaRouche to UN: New Economic Order Begins With New Silk Road

Helga Zepp-LaRouche publishes an appeal to the United Nations [PDF] stating that Xi Jingping's adoption of the Silk Road policy creates the opportunity to "put the legitimate demand of the Non-Aligned Movement for a just world economic order back on the agenda." Helga LaRouche writes: "We all know that the current economic order in the world only allows a very small percentage of the population to live a life of luxury, that only a relatively small percentage live decently, that many languish in inhumane poverty, while what Pope Francis called "hidden euthanasia" is widespread...

Helga Zepp-LaRouche calls upon the United Nations to 'put the legitimate demand of the Non-Aligned Movement for a just world economic order back on the agenda.'

"It is high time to put the legitimate demand of the Non-Aligned Movement for a just world economic order back on the agenda. Such a new order could begin with the proposal of Chinese President Xi Jinping at the latest SCO conference, to build the new Silk Road as the basis for peaceful cooperation among all the countries along that route. This proposal is totally in line with the proposal for a Eurasian Land-Bridge that the Schiller Institute advanced beginning in 1991, in reaction to the disintegration of the Soviet Union. That concept has been expanded, in the meantime, to a World Land-Bridge to bring people together, which has gained many friends and supporters throughout the world. Such a worldwide infrastructure and development program would hoist us onto the next higher economic platform, where hunger and underdevelopment could be eliminated forever."

LaRouche Movement Publishes Video Detailing Thailand 'Kra Canal' Policy

The LaRouche movement publishes a video detailing the proposal to build a canal through the Kra Isthmus of Thailand and the extended economic and strategic significance of the project for Southeast Asia.

On September 23, a feature video is published by the LaRouchePAC detailing the thirty-year history of the LaRouche movement's leadership in the campaign to build a sea-canal across the Kra Isthmus in Thailand to connect the Gulf of Thailand with the Indian Ocean as a keystone project for the development of the Southeast Asian region. The video also reviews other key economic development projects for this region, including the development of nuclear power and rail transport. A transcript of this video is featured in Executive Intelligence Review magazine [PDF].

A Chinese-language journal Fortune Times contacts LaRouche a few months later to interview him on the Kra Canal [PDF], in which LaRouche states:

"The great boost to economic development of the South-Asia development, the massive economic advantage, and relative simplicity, of the undertaking, fulfillment, would be the exceptionally massive economic benefits such a canal represents for all of the nations of East and South Asia. There are two truly great nations in Asia: India, and the more populous China. The sheer volume of maritime trade between the two great nations of Asia, and their connections through the South Asia maritime regions, make the canal probably the most potentially beneficial, and also efficient project for the entire region of the Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, and the co-development of the major regions of Planet Earth as a whole."

President Xi Jingping Calls for 'Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century'

Xi Jingping becomes the first foreign head of state to address the Indonesian Parliament, proposing a policy to develop the 'Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century.'

Less than a month after calling for a 'Silk Road Economic Belt' through central Asia during his trip to Kazakhstan, Chinese President Xi Jingping follows this up with a call for the creation of a 'Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century' during a speech to the Indonesian Parliament on October 3, 2013. This policy proposal would be for the maritime development of East and Southeast Asia in tandem with the policy for land development of Central Asia that he had announced the week before. During the speech, Xi also announces the creation of an Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) to fund these projects.

President Xi states: "Southeast Asia has since ancient times s been an important hub along the ancient Maritime Silk Road. China will strengthen maritime cooperation with ASEAN countries to vigorously develop maritime partnership in a joint effort to build the Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century. China is ready to expand its practical cooperation with ASEAN countries across the board, supplying each other's needs and complementing each other's strengths.

2014: Helga Zepp-LaRouche Returns to China to Promote 'New Silk Road'

Helga Zepp-LaRouche in front of the magnetically levitated train in Shangai, China in February 2014.

In February 2014, Helga Zepp-LaRouche returns to Chine for the first time since 1996 to participate in over a dozen seminars, conferences, and television interviews on the subject of the New Silk Road. The trip was occasioned by the announcement by President Xi Jingping of his 'Silk Road Economic Belt' policy, which precipitated numerous invitations to Helga LaRouche from academics and policy makers familiar with her leadership role since the early 1990s in promoting the Eurasian Landbridge.

During her trip, Helga LaRouche is featured in a half-hour interview on the prime-time CCTV 'Dialogue' program by Yang Rui, a prominent journalist in China who has interviewed numerous world leaders and heads of state. He begins by introducing Helga LaRouche as the person "who first advocated the idea of a Eurasian Land-Bridge more than 20 years ago" and is referred to as the New Silk Road Lady. In the interview, she stresses that the extended Eurasian Landbridge can serve as the foundation for "a peace order for the 21st century" and create a paradigm shift away from perpetual war:

Helga Zepp-LaRouche is interviewed by Yang Rui on the prominent prime-time Chinese news program 'Dialogue' broadcast on CCTV.

"We have to move away from geopolitics, because geopolitics gave the world two world wars in the 20th Century. If we stay with geopolitics, we are on the verge of a Third World War. The conception of the Eurasian Land-Bridge is larger than only the Silk Road, because it also involves the building of a corridor along the Trans-Siberian Railway, and it has many routes going all the way to Indonesia, into Africa. We are really talking about the Silk Road being the beginning of a World Land-Bridge... It is extremely important to put a peace order for the 21st Century on the table and create a level of reason, where everybody who participates has a benefit, so that historical conflicts, past wars, and all these problems are put behind us, if you build the Eurasian Land-Bridge as a totality."

Helga LaRouche was also interviewed on China Radio International's 'People In The Know' program [PDF], in which she stressed that the New Silk Road can serve as the pathway to "a new system of credit among sovereign nations" to replace the current collapsing financial system:

Helga Zepp-LaRouche is interviewed by the host of China Radio International's 'People In The Know' program Zheng Chenguang (photo: CRI English).

"The New Silk Road idea, which is really identical with our Eurasian Land-Bridge proposal of 24 years ago, would have large projects, building corridors, building fast-speed railways, building water projects to overcome the deserts. And these are projects which would be international. So you need to have international mutual credit agreements among different nations, to build these over the long term. Meaning that you cannot expect profit in two months, but you would plan these projects over 10, 20, 40, even 50 years, and you make credit arrangements among sovereign countries to accomplish that. So, we need to think about how to replace the present collapsing financial system, with a new system of credit among sovereign nations."

China and Russia Establish Historic Strategic-Economic Relationship

Chinese President Xi Jingping and Russian President Vladimir Putin hold an historic summit on May 22, 2014 in which they significantly upgrade and solidify the strategic and economic relationship between their two nations. The two leaders issue a joint declaration giving clear support to each other's economic development initiatives, the President Xi's 'Silk Road Economic Belt' and President Putin's 'Eurasian Economic Union', pledging to merge their efforts for mutual development.

At the core of the agreement is the finalization of a 30-year natural gas deal in which Russia will provide China with 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually in exchange for Chinese financing of necessary pipeline construction and oil field development. The economic agreements also include mutual investment in transportation, infrastructure, mineral development and "increases in the effectiveness of cooperation in areas of high technology, developing collaboration in the realization of priority projects such as the international use of nuclear energy, civil aviation, and in the program of cooperation on fundamental space research, satellite monitoring of the Earth, satellite navigation, and the study of deep space and human astronautics."

Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus Create Eurasian Economic Union

Presidents Lukashenka, Nazerbayev, and Putin sign a treaty creating the Eurasian Economic Union in Astana, Kazakhstan on May 29, 2014.

At a meeting on May 29 in Astana, Kazakhstan, the presidents of Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus sign a treaty creating the Eurasian Economic Union [PDF]. President Putin of Russia emphasizes at a press conference that this economic union will facilitate the creation of trans-Eurasian "transport-logistic routes" of global importance: "The Treaty we signed is one of truly epoch-making, historic importance. It opens up the broadest possible prospects for economic development and improvement of the welfare of the citizens of our countries. Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan are moving to a fundamentally new level of cooperation, creating a common area. Our three countries will be able to conduct a coordinated policy in key economic areas such as energy, industry, agriculture, and transport. energy, industry, agriculture, and transport... The geographical position permits us to create transport logistic routes of not only regional, but also global importance that permit attracting massive trade flows in Europe and Asia."

President Nazerbayev of Kazakhstan emphasizes that the Eurasian Union will become a new model of relations between sovereign states: "A new geopolitical reality of the 21st Century is born fundamentally new model for good neighborly relations and interaction between peoples in the great Eurasian space."

Majority of Planet Unites Behind Argentina's Resistance to Vulture Funds

In response to a ruling by a New York court in favor of 'hold-out' vulture fund NML Capital's usurious debt-claim against Argentina at 1,608% profit, a majority of the world's nations united in support of Argentina's refusal to pay. Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner makes a speech to the G77 Summit in Bolivia in which she states: "In this kind of anarcho-capitalism, where a small group of financiers runs the rest of humanity, a group known as 'vulture funds' obtained debt instruments at absurdly low prices. This small group of vulture funds is endangering not only Argentina. In reality what is at stake is the international financial system, and the international economic system more than the financial system. This is financial capitalism and the appearance of what is called financial derivatives, which began to generate, or at least make the world believe that they were generating, money without going through the cycle of the production of goods and services, which is impossible and obviously generate astronomically high profits, but also the existence of fictitious money."

The nations of the G-77 in green, plus Russia in blue, representing over 80% of the world's population, voice their unanimous support for the cause of Argentina and its resistance against the vulture funds.

The entire Group of 77 (G-77), representing 133 nations and a total of 5.6 billion people, or 78% of the world's population, largely overlapping in terms of membership with the nations of the Non-Aligned Movement, votes unanimously to support Argentina and stand in solidarity against the vulture funds.

President Fernández de Kirchner welcomes the international outpouring of support and stresses: "Today the vulture funds endanger the international financial system. This is not a matter of North or South, but of a productive economic against a speculative one."

The acting Foreign Minister of Guyana calls for a return to the Glass-Steagall law to end 'modern-day piracy' at an emergency meeting of the OAS in Washington DC.

At an emergency meeting in Washington D.C. of the Organization of American States (OAS), the acting Foreign Minister of Guyana Robeson Benn calls for a return to Glass-Steagall to defend nations from the usury typified by the vulture funds [PDF]: "I would like to pose the question as to whether we should not, out of this imbroglio, re-look at the overall question of the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 in the United States, which related to the activity of the banking system, the international financial institutions, mainly resident in the United States and in the United Kingdom. President Roosevelt, of the United States of America, established a banking act, signed off on the Banking Act of 1933, which set up firewalls between the activities of the banks, and on the questions of speculation in the financial system. There is, perhaps, the need now to take a look at putting back in place important sections of the Glass-Steagall Act which was repealed in 1999... We need to review the question, or call upon U.S. legislators to pursue efforts to put back in place the type of regulation in the banking system which would prevent vulture funds, which would prevent this 'modern-day piracy' which has serious implications for the world economy."

Helga LaRouche: New Silk Road Is Creating New World Economic Order

Helga Zepp-LaRouche publishes an article in EIR magazine titled 'The New Silk Road Is Creating a New Just World Economic Order'

On the eve of the BRICS Summit in Fortaleza, Brazil, Helga Zepp-LaRouche publishes an article titled "The New Silk Road Is Creating a New Just World Economic Order" [PDF] in which she states: "A strategic realignment of a large number of states is currently taking place... The core of this positive change is the emergence of an economic platform to develop the New Silk Road which China has made a priority of its foreign policy. Chinese President Xi Jinping and numerous government officials have repeatedly emphasized in international forums, the principles on which the New Silk Road economic zone is based: mutual development, non-confrontation, mutual respect and dialogue, respect for the other's choice of social system, support for the strategic interests of the other state, absolute respect for sovereignty, and renunciation of any form of hegemonism...

"Various aspects of the Silk Road policy are already on the agenda: connections along the historic route in Central Asia; the maritime Silk Road, including construction of a "second Panama Canal" in Nicaragua, with Chinese help; and the strategic cooperation between Russia and China which was adopted at the summit in May between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. The principle also includes the offer by Prime Minister Li Keqiang, that China is ready to connect all the African capitals by high speed rail.

"It is expected that at the summit of the BRICS countries in Fortaleza, Brazil on July 13-14, not only will the five member states intensify their cooperation according to the "Silk Road" concept, but there will also be various bilateral and multilateral meetings be tween their leaders and those of Latin America, at which large projects and contracts will be agreed upon, constituting, in combination, the beginning of a new world economic order. A BRICS Development Bank is to be established, with a starting capital of $100 billion, as well as a foreign exchange pool to better protect participating developing countries from currency turbulence. In addition, China is preparing the ground work for an Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), with initial capital equivalent to $50 billion. The goal of these new institutions is also to reduce dependence on the dollar and move toward trade in the respective national currencies...

"The new international economic order is coming into existence through China's New Silk Road policy."

BRICS Summit: Half of Humanity Launches New World Economic Order

The leaders of the five BRICS nations are joined by the South American heads of state in Fortaleza, Brazil on July 16, 2014 to establish a new international economic order for the planet.

The leaders of the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) meet on July 16 in Fortaleza, Brazil for the Sixth BRICS Summit and take actions establishing a New International Economic Order. The BRICS Summit issued a 72-point Fortaleza Declaration announcing the formation of the New Development Bank (NDB), directly echoing the proposal by Lyndon LaRouche from nearly four decades before to create an International Development Bank (IDB) to create long-term, low-interest credit for capital investment into the so-called developing sector in order to overcome the underdevelopment of Africa, Latin America, and large parts of Asia. The Declaration also announces the establishment of a Contingent Reserve Requirement (CRA) to protect nations from currency speculation and financial manipulations.

President Vladimir Putin emphasizes the establishment of the New Development Bank at the BRICS Summit in Fortaleza, Brazil (Presidential Press and Information Office).

President Putin of Russia highlights these two initiatives in his address to the conference: "We are united by a desire to act from unified positions in all issues of global development and the formation of the global financial and economic architecture... We have been able to achieve significant successes. I want to stress that all the plans we set for ourselves a year ago have come to fruition. I am referring, first and foremost, to our plans to create a new Development Bank and a Currency Reserve Pool for BRICS nations. Today, we have confirmed their founding documents. The BRICS bank will become one of the largest multilateral financial development institutions in the world. Its stated capital will be $100 billion. The scale of possible operations within the framework of the Currency Reserve Pool may also reach $100 billion. This mechanism creates the prerequisites for effectively protecting our countries from financial market crises. The bank and the Currency Pool, with combined resources of $200 billion, lay the foundation for coordinating a macroeconomic policy between our nations."

Newly elected Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrates the leadership significance of the BRICS as defining the future, saying:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India addresses the Sixth BRICS Summit on July 16, 2014 in Fortaleza, Brazil (Press Information Bureau of India).

"The vision of a New Development Bank, at the Delhi Summit two years ago, has been translated into a reality, in Fortaleza. It will benefit BRICS nations, but will also support other developing nations... The uniqueness of BRICS as an international institution is that for the first time, it brings together a group of nations on the parameter of 'future potential' rather than existing prosperity or shared identities. The very idea of BRICS is thus forward-looking... We have an opportunity to define the future - of not just our countries, but the world at large. Coming from a land where the idea of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - the 'whole world being one family' - is rooted deep in our ethos; I take this is as a great responsibility."

Immediately following the BRICS summit, the five heads of state hold a follow-on summit with the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR). Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner speaks to the gathering and declares the establishment of a new international financial order: "It is with great pleasure that we salute this decision of the BRICs to create a development bank, focused on infrastructure... We are posing a new global financial order, one that is not jut fair and equitable, but indispensable. What we demand from the world, is precisely the creation of a new global financial order which will permit sustainable and global economic growth.... Thus, the appeal to all nations is to join forces in this real crusade for a new global political, economic and financial organization that will have positive social, political, economic, and cultural consequences for our nations."

EIR Publishes Updated Special Report on World Landbridge

In her introduction to a newly published special report on the World Landbridge project from Executive Intelligence Review, titled "The New Silk Road Leads To The Future Of Mankind" [PDF], Helga Zepp-LaRouche writes:

Helga LaRouche's introduction to an updated edition of EIR's Special Report on the World Landbridge is titled 'New Silk Road Leads to Future of Mankind.'

"In less than one year, an alliance of nations has been created, which has built a parallel economic order with giant steps, one which is dedicated exclusively to the building of the real economy, in opposition to the maximization of speculative monetary profit, and which now includes more than half of mankind. This new community of nations represents a power center based on economic growth, and above all, on leading-edge technology, one which belongs to the future...

"A new strategy for mankind means the ability, from now on, to see the human species as a unity, and to see that unity in the process of mutual development... This also signifies a new model of cooperation among the nations of the world. It means that all potential treaty organizations and alliances must be inclusive, that they cannot be for the security and economic interests of some nations, while excluding others. While the support of mutual development is the premise, they must nonetheless respect the different levels of development, history, culture, and social systems, and above all, respect national sovereignty. That is Nicholas of Cusa's idea of unity in multiplicity, and it must be inspired by a tender love for the idea of the community of nations, for the idea of mankind as the creative species."

Helga Zepp-LaRouche Tours Silk Road Route on Return Visit to China

Helga Zepp-LaRouche speaks on the New Silk Road at the 'One Belt, One Road' conference in Beijing, China.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche is invited to return again to China to tour the Silk Road route and address several high-level conferences on the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative of Xi Jingping. On September 5, 2014 she addresses a high-level forum in Beijing on the topic "One Belt, One Road" [PDF] along with Col. Bao Shixiu, Professor (Emeritus) of Military Science at the People's Liberation Army Academy of Military Science who emphasized in his speech the leading role of both Helga and Lyndon LaRouche in the campaign for the New Silk Road since the beginning of the 1990's [PDF]. The event, sponsored by China Investment magazine, which is an arm of the National Development and Reform Commission, the main economic policy planning commission under the State Council of the Chinese government, was the first of what is intended to become an annual event bringing together researchers from many Chinese think-tanks tasked with the mission of developing a program for President Xi Jinping's Silk Road Economic Belt.

Helga LaRouche is also a participant in an international conference on the New Silk Road at Lanzhou University attended by representatives of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by the president of Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin. Additionally, she is interviewed twice on the prime-time CCTV 'Dialogue' show, as well as on Chinese Radio International [PDF]. During the latter interview she states:

Helga LaRouche is interviewed by numerous Chinese media during her visit to China in September 2014.

"In these six months, tremendous developments have taken place. You had the strategically extremely important summit between President Xi Jinping and President Putin in Shanghai in May, and then in July, the equally important BRICS meeting in Brazil, which was followed by a summit between the BRICS countries and the heads of state of Latin America. And what has emerged out of this series of meetings is a fantastic development, namely, the shaping of a new financial order and a new economic system. And this is extremely important, because this has given tremendous hope to many other countries to finally go for the kind of development which is in their self-interest."
