EIR Participates in Moscow Economic Forum

March 28, 2016

EIR's Jeffrey Steinberg participated in the fourth annual Moscow Economic Forum on March 23-24 at Moscow State University. Over 1,000 people attended the two-day forum, including guests from all over Europe and China. Steinberg was the only American speaker at the two-day event.

Steinberg addressed a conference session on fiscal policy, detailing the actual collapse of the U.S. economy from the time of the end of the Bretton Woods system, the shutdown of the real economy, the rise of the too-big-to-fail banks and the Dodd-Frank bail-in policy.  During the final plenary sessions, he addressed the entire conference on the new paradigm of Eurasian development, reiterating the collapse of the trans-Atlantic system and urging the participants to focus on the One Belt, One Road program.  "The future is to be found in the Xian-to-Duisburg and related Eurasian development corridors."
