LaRouche: Get On The Economic Question

At the end of the first week of the Barack Obama Presidency, U.S. statesman Lyndon LaRouche cautioned against over- interpreting and over-reacting to developments to date.

"These are the early days of the Obama administration, and it's just getting some things going. People may question some of these policies; they may be modified. So let's not get too excited about them," LaRouche stated. "The administration has to get underway; it cannot sit around and wait until all the 'i's are dotted and the 't's crossed. It must get going. It will make decisions and it will change some of its decisions as things go on. So let's not get too excited about things.

"They have to keep the government running, but they have not yet established their policy. Look at the mistakes that are coming out, such as this green aspect of the policy that Obama uttered himself. There is no clearly competent policy coming out. There's a Presidency," LaRouche continued, "which has to get itself in shape, and has to keep its dynamics going and not make any serious mistakes. But it will make mistakes in the process, and so what? It's not the first administration that's made a few mistakes along the line, so there's no reason to get too excited about that."

When people raise secondary issues, LaRouche said, we're going to change the subject. "Get on the economic question in general," LaRouche emphasized. "That's what we have to concentrate on: international relations, the British empire, and economics. And by doing that, I think we can get this thing under control."
