The global economy is sick. The unprecedented lockdowns occurring simultaneously across the world has thrown many people out of work, stopped international travel, hindered trade, closed entire industries, and increased money printing, debt and government cash disbursements around the world.

Where is this all leading to?

What is the “New Normal” that the world is being asked to accept?
Is the “Old Normal” something we want to return to? Or is there a better alternative?

Can We Create 1.5 Billion New, Productive Jobs Around the World?

At a time when people are asked to stay home, stay away from work, stay away from school, stop domestic and international travel, what effect will this have on our societies and economies?

Does this mean that there will be an inevitable crash?

Are we supposed to accepting a decline into a “New Normal” of stagnation and slow growth?

How will this affect the poorest in the society, and the world?

The International Schiller Institute, following its 40-year mission to create a just international economic order, has worked with some of the world’s most important leaders over that time -- including Ronad Reagan of the US, Indira Gandhi of India, Michael Lopez Portillo in Mexico and the Governments of China and Russia – to achieve this end.

Join me, Dr. Kirk Meighoo, in a fascinating and insightful discussion with Helga Zepp LaRouche, founder and President of the International Schiller Institute in Germany (, as we discuss how the Institute’s international activities have helped to push progress for all nations – including developing nations such as Trinidad and Tobago, India, others throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia, and also for the ordinary mass of peoples of Europe and North America.
