The Economic Policy that Made the Peace of WestphaliaBy Pierre Beaudry
The LaRouche Organization has been referencing the Treaty of Westphalia in many of its articles. Pierre Beaudry's The Economic Policy that Made the Peace of Westphalia published in EIR magazine will give you the historical understanding of this extremely important concept. British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s speech in Chicago in 1999, in which he declared that the era of the Treaty of Westphalia was over, opened a period of unceasing wars by major powers on smaller nations. The principles of the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia are needed now more than ever.
