1 — Introduction: Lyndon LaRouche’s Science of Economics is the Basis for the USA Joining China and Russia in a New Historical Paradigm

October 4, 2017 — The United States presently has the opportunity to abandon a dead, failing geopolitical and economic system, and join with China, Russia, and other nations in a win-win paradigm of joint development.  However, standard textbook economics fails to provide the needed scientific understanding of human progress and development.  We have to turn to Lyndon LaRouche’s science of economics as the basis for this new historical paradigm, starting with his discovery of Potential Relative Population Density.

    Hello Ulf,

    You’re right! I should have examined the it more closely before choosing that graphic of the triple curve (I’m not sure who made that one).

    Thanks, Ben

    Great class.
    Ben is situating the need for the need of this study so eloquently.
    Just fix the arrows for the Collapse function curves. The curves and text are correct,, but the two arrows on top should be switched. The text is referring to the order at the beginning of the curves, not the end.

    You used wage figures that were adjusted for inflation, but you reported the cost of living in absolute dollars. This did not make the point you intended to those who were aware of the source of your figures. Rather we should ask, if average wages have increased 10% since 1978 adjusted for inflation, why is there so much despair? The inflation index is probably lying, but despair results from lack of future potential when that becomes unavoidably manifest. The standard of living in the U.S. has been maintained at the expense of future potential ever since the murder of JFK, the last Presidency to make a significant investment in the future of our country. At first, only a few people noticed. Now it punches all of us in the face every second.

    Has the LaRouche group done any research on a methodology for the measurement of benefits of or ROI so to speak on technology transfer including more intangible benefits such as the transformative process?

    Please repeat the statement just made by the audience. Sound is too garbled to understand

    1) Are both geopolitics and the win-win paradigm, self-fulfilling prophecies?

    2) How best to deal with materialist and bad-faith actors when organising?

    The bottom line in todays world seems to be too many workers and too few jobs. In a world of 7 billion customers how can this be possible?

    While many people may agree with Larouche’s plan, they also would feel that this country couldn’t afford to implement it. What must be done to make this plan affordable? Do away with Wall St and the Federal Reserve and go back to the Constitution giving Congress the power to create and issue money in the form of credit? Please explain this a little more. Thanks.

    Hello Alex Harras, Clive Ettia, and Fouad AlGhaffari!

    Greetings from almost sunny Lima, Peru. I look forward to this class and hope I can continue to share the ideas even more effectively with those here in PE who are open-minded and receptive enough to listen. I have been familiar with LaRouche and his work from the mid or late 1970s. Most people don’t know him, but they immediately respond positively when they hear about his scientific work. Then they want to learn more because the current ideas are simply bankrupt. I have felt this at various NGOs and development cooperations where I have consulted. To be sure, I have a felt my share of irrational resistance in those organizations, too. Anyway, I look forward to participating with everyone in this unique opportunity.

    Physics and Economics as directly related subjects, history of the Scientists involved and formal explanations surrounding the relationship. Invaluable information. Thank you.

    I am happy from Yemen to find about these cources. We in Yemen know very much about Larouch Values, it not a discovery today, its back to the US old System along the New Silk Road gift! I wish we can mobilize these cources in Yemen, Will do when possible!
