Towards a Producers’ Alliance, How To Rebuild the U.S. Economy
This is adapted from a live presentation, given on Feb. 11, 2021, available here. Just to frame briefly what I am going to be discussing, I will begin with a short quote from Abraham Lincoln: “All creation is a mine and every man a miner.”
We’re going to be discussing the field of physical economy. Physical economy dates back to Gottfried Leibniz, but really has roots that go back to the Renaissance. Today, it is a principle that needs to be rediscovered. In the last 50 to 70 years, there have been people who have understood its conceptions, people like Susan Kokinda’s friend Bill Knudsen, associated with Ford and GM and the wartime mobilization; Henry Kaiser and the aluminum industry; Jesse Jones and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. These were industrialists who collaborated with President Franklin Roosevelt in the war mobilization and beyond. And I think that is a useful starting point: we have to rediscover what they understood, but also take it to another level, which is where Lyndon LaRouche took it, in depth.
