These are simple questions, but neither liberal Democrats, free-trade Republicans, nor academic economists of any stripe can answer them. Nevertheless, any citizen or elected official who considers themselves a patriot must be able to at least understand the principles that point to a competent answer. The principles are elementary, but, as any scientist knows, elementary is never simple. The basic principle of economic progress can be summed up by the proposition that the fundamental characteristic of the universe is anti-entropic.
Now that the new Congress has finally organized, under what may potentially be an improved trajectory, it is incumbent on us to ensure that they understand what is real economic progress. In tonight’s third class on LaRouche’s science of physical economy, Tony Papert and Bruce Director will discuss the principles you need to know to understand anti-entropy.
