HS 84 – Future Predictions, and Monetary Policy with Harley Schlanger

Bookmark and Share

Harley Schlanger

Join Jason Hartman for an interesting interview with Harley Schlanger, the Western States Bureau Chief for the controversial and interesting LaRouche Pac. Harley defines the purpose of LaRouche Pac, describing it as based on the intersection of philosophy, history and science, looking at economics as physical processes and not just monetary. Lyndon LaRouche stands for a sovereign state in the United States and has been warning of the smoke and mirrors politics that have been going on since the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  For more details, listen at:  www.HolisticSurvival.com. Harley discusses the deregulation that has been going on in this country for years, as well as many of the predictions that LaRouche Pac has made that have come true or are in the process of coming true, including the stock market crash in the ‘80s, the era of speculation that began with the end of the Glass-Steagall Act, and the freezing and collapse of the banks most recently. Jason and Harley talk about the environmental movement and who profits, the disappearing middle class, and the loss of production in the United States with NAFTA. Harley says we’ve lost the understanding of wealth, citing examples of production going offshore, energy production going back to solar and wind power, and how we don’t even consume most of what we produce because it’s shipped overseas. Harley lists many ways that our physical economy can be improved and protected, which could bring the United States back to a self-sufficient state.

Mr. Harley Schlanger has been Executive Intelligence Review magazine’s Southwest Bureau Chief for more than 15 years. In the recent years he has become a national spokesman  for Lyndon LaRouche’s Political Action Committee. As Bureau chief he had written numerous articles including on the mid-1980’s Savings and Loan crisis, the looting of pension funds and in September 2008, the illegal bail out the investment funds such Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by the Federal government. As an investigative journalist Schlanger has contributed to a number of books published by EIR. Some of the research was incorporated in The Ugly Truth About the ADL, Bush: The Unauthorized Biography, for example. Schlanger himself made a run for the U.S. Senate in 1990, receiving 250,000 votes in the Texas Democratic primary. He was born in 1949 in Marietta, Ohio, holds a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, and an M.A. in European History from Rutgers University, where he was a National Defense Education Act fellow for three years.

LaRouche’s own summary outline of the “seven necessary steps” ran as follows:

“Dumping the present system, absolutely, through the aid of Glass-Steagall, a Glass-Steagall reform in the original form, with the same force and intention as the original Franklin Roosevelt movement, that’s absolutely necessary.

“We need to apply the credit we get available to us, for our states and for the national government, first of all, to provide stability for the economy and actual growth patterns. We need to go further, with large-scale projects based on the creation of a credit system, as opposed to a monetary system. We will use money, but it will be designated as originally under a credit system, not a money system. We will take the credit we can generate, and use that credit, in part, to put the economy back in functioning. “But then, beyond that, we must have a major driver program, based in large-scale infrastructure, of which NAWAPA is the most suitable case. And through that program and through the accelerated program of scientific progress, including, of course, the space program, reviving it and taking it beyond what it has been before; have a science-driver program, which turns capital investment into growth facilities, into the driver for the expansion of wealth produced per capita and per square kilometer in the United States and other nations.”
