NYC Class Series -- Moon-Mars Economics, pt 4
November 5, 2009 • 9:16AM

How does a science-driver program pay for itself differently than does an infrastructure investment? How will LaRouche’s Mars colonization effort change human economics in a way that the Apollo program did not? This week's presentation, after covering some more basic economic concepts, jumped into the specifics of space colonization, covering the different regions to be developed, the types of rockets to be used, problems in food production, and a history of Mars development plans through the years, compared to LaRouche’s.

The wide-ranging discussion period covered cultural changes associated with a space-orientation, the possibility of a secret space program existing, the scale of development required, and who wants to stop mankind from reaching the stars.
