What We Need in 2016: — Alexander Hamilton's Principles, LaRouche's Four Laws

October 17, 2016

The degradation of the U.S. presidential campaign is pressing down like a stone on the chest of, not just the American people, but the world. Americans are reporting they have "election stress" at the extreme levels usually only caused by the worst events of economic collapse or war.

The media with all its "sound and fury signifying nothing" is intentionally demoralizing Americans about their country's future. It is intentionally driving their representatives to hide in deep partisan foxholes — who, just over a month ago, were able to unite in a great victory over Saudi/British sponsorship of Islamic terrorism, defeating President Obama's attempts to block or veto the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.

What the nation and the world need, instead, is to "elect principles": the principles of economy of Alexander Hamilton on which this nation was founded.

Hamilton's principles of economy are expressed afresh in Lyndon LaRouche's development since 2014 of "Four Laws to Save the United States." They are natural law applied to economics.

This is actually an international matter; the world needs to adopt Hamilton's works, and LaRouche's Four Laws, as China has begun to demonstrate. The "Deutsche Banks" of the trans-Atlantic countries are ready to blow out the London-centered financial system and spread worse poverty than the 2008 crash did. The threat of collapse is leading to threats of war with Russia, coming from Obama and the British.

What can prevent this, is restored economic progress and productivity around the world. Alexander Hamilton's principles did this — uniquely — from the founding of the United States. As President George Washington noted in a 1793 letter, the effect of Hamilton's policies "had the appearance of a miracle" in raising up the new United States from bankruptcy to rapid investment and growth.

LaRouche's Four Laws reapply Hamilton's principles now.

American citizens should write in LaRouche's name at the presidential ballot box to stand for the re-adoption of Alexander Hamilton's economic principles, as LaRouche has reclarified them.

"I'm writing in LaRouche and Alexander Hamilton, let's get the nation to elect the right principles" will cut through the dread with which Americans are questioning each other about the approach of Election Day. The only option for survival of the United States and the world economy, is offered by Hamilton's principles as clarified by LaRouche's Four Laws. Decide the future.

Philippines: Join AIIB, Dump PPP's & Go Public

Philippine Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III told the Inquirer last week, published Monday, that the Duterte Administration has called on the Senate to ratify the country's membership in the Chinese-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) this week, before Duterte's trip to China at the end of the week. He also said that the government planned to spend $160 billion for infrastructure during the six-year term.

Two weeks ago Dominguez told a Washington audience that were the United States to cut back on its investments in the Philippines, it would be too bad for them but no problem for the Philippines, since many other nations were anxious to invest in the nation, now that it has a pro-growth government.

He said they expected that membership in the AIIB would help "erase the massive public works gap that has hobbled the local economy," and would "unlock funding for all other projects that the government would want to undertake — whether they be a new rail project, an expansion of the country's aging road network or new airports."

The subservience to U.S. imperial looting of the nation since the 1980s overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos has resulted in both mass poverty, a gaping deficit in infrastructure, and the most expensive electricity in all of Asia.

Most importantly, Dominguez made a sharp attack on the Washington-enforced policy known as Public-Private Partnership (PPP), which was a gimmick to leave infrastructure to the private sector, but with access to government money. He said that the Aquino administration (a puppet to Obama, both economically, and militarily regarding Obama's confrontation with China) "used incorrect borrowing-cost scenarios for evaluating PPP projects, including the assumption that private sector firms would be able to fund infrastructure projects more cheaply because of efficiency considerations. They were always assuming that the private sector will be 15-percent cheaper than the government. Why should that be?" He pointed to specific earlier projects that the government could have done more inexpensively than the private firms.

Dominguez also denounced the Aquino policy of choosing the company for PPP projects which offered the highest payment (bribe) to the government upfront.
