China Daily journalist Fu Jing launched his new book A New Code for Common Peace and Prosperity on Oct. 11, 2017 at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The book, published by Guangdong People’s Publishing House, explains how China and the European Union can deepen cooperation through the Belt and Road Initiative over the coming years.
On the eve of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China which began on Oct. 18 in Beijing, People’s Daily prepared a fast-moving four minute video giving the answers of 60 young Americans to what they think of China and its future prospects. The video features the assessment of Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the founder of the Schiller Institute, presenting her as the authority among those interviewed.
Nineteen U.S. Congressmen have drafted a letter demanding an investigation into the activity of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is spearheading the drive to contain or remove President Donald Trump from power, based on the absurd allegations that his election was the result of Russian operations directed by President Putin. The letter was addressed to Senator Chuck Grassley, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, both Republicans. It represents the first official effort to challenge Mueller’s open-ended fishing expedition, which has expanded far beyond its original legal mandate, and has yet to produce a scrap of evidence implicating either Putin or Trump.
The past weeks have seen an outpouring of warnings that the transatlantic financial system is about to crash again, taking the speculative bubbles and toxic debts, which are much larger today than in 2008, down with it. From the International Monetary Fund to the Bank for International Settlements and Deutsche Bank, alarm bells have been set off.
On Thursday, October 5, at 6 pm CET, Helga Zepp LaRouche inaugurated a weekly English-language webcast on the Schiller Institute website, at the request of many key players in politics and economics internationally, as well as Schiller Institute friends worldwide. She brought to the attention of citizens throughout the world the incredible new dynamic which has been unleashed around China’s Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI).
After visiting Puerto Rico which had been devastated by the hurricanes, President Trump suggested that the island’s debt should be “wiped out”. Immediately, Wall Street went into a panic mode and the mainstream media spouted that a.) he can’t do it; b.) he doesn’t know what he’s talking about; and c.) Cabinet members are “walking back” his comments. But they all missed the most obvious point — which is that there is no way that Puerto Rico can pay back the debt! Trump is right, it must be written-off.
The insane austerity, no-growth policy of the European Union has undoubtedly fueled the growing movement for independence in Catalonia and elsewhere. But behind the upsurge of calls for breaking up the nations of Europe, there is another, much less mediatized aspect which was taken up by Karel Vereycken, the former spokesman for French presidential candidate Jacques Cheminade, in an interview with Sputnik posted on Oct. 6.
The growth of the independence movement in Catalonia is very much a consequence of the austerity policy imposed by the European Union and the European Central Bank in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crash, in order to save the bankrupt banks. Unemployment is nearly 20% average, and for young Spaniards, it is up to 40%, forcing many to leave the country in search of a job.
On Oct. 5, at 18.00 CET, Helga Zepp LaRouche, the Founder and Chairwoman of the Schiller Institute, inaugurated a weekly English-language webcast to spread what she calls the “New Silk Road Spirit” to the world. Mrs. LaRouche is one of the most prominent intellectual authors of the concept of the Eurasian Land-bridge, expanded to the World Land-bridge. Since Chinese President Xi Jinping put the New Silk Road (now called the Belt and Road Initiative) on the agenda four years ago, it is lifting tens of millions out of poverty, and proposes an alternative to the dangerous idea of geopolitical division of the world.
