LaRouche Shocker—The American System Is Neither Capitalist or Communist—Why Didn't You Know That?

That unique economic design was further elaborated by Henry Carey, Abraham Lincoln's economist, presenting the ideas which resulted in the superior logistics of the North in the Civil War. This invention has been attacked, distorted, and rather thoroughly wiped from American history books, as the result of a concerted infiltration and mobilization by our British imperial foe. Here, Lyndon LaRouche, who substantially advanced these ideas, tells you the real story.
