KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 64 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Apr-26-17  devere: A disappointingly small number of people seem to realize that you can't insure against an adverse risk that has already occurred. You can't insure a burning house against fire. You couldn't insure the Titanic against sinking after it hit the iceberg. And you can't insure the medical expenses of very sick people. All that you can do to help those very sick people is give them charity. And if you try to pay for that charity by charging healthy people very high insurance premiums, those healthy people will not buy the overpriced insurance. Haven't we just proved that with Obamacare? Isn't one definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?

I am fine with the government helping very sick uninsured people. We must do it by using tax revenue, with the single condition that the help isn't so generous that it causes healthy people to stay uninsured.

Good. That's how they do it in Canada and Europe, too. Everyone has a right to survive.

Then you need something similar to our NHS. It seems American healthcare is abysmal unless you're wealthy, or have an income that's <far above> the minimum wage. I haven't seen anyone look at why a NHS works for us but wouldn't work in America. It's all about the almighty dollar and Trump is the poster pensioner for money in America, I don't see how he or anyone else is going to fix it, you have a serious problem especially for the poor and needy, not everyone gives to charity.

Why so cheap?
It's not their money.

$14000 an hour!
Lets give folks "real" living!

It wouldn't matter if you were, because you can't get into the game. Even on your tippy toes you can't see over the counter.

It's funny though.

LOL!

Watch you try to do politics is like watching a toddler stumble around the house with his dad's boots on.

LOL!

Pure pablum.

Seems like England is full of emasculated mama's boys.

It's amazing how you can't see outside your little tiny bubble.

The problem with you <mark> is that you're a brainwashed liberal cuck and you don't know it.

You really don't know it.

You sound like a liberal feminist woman when you go on your political rants. It's so cringe worthy and you have no concept of it at all.

It's abnormal.

Apr-26-17  User not found: LMAO. Butthurt much?? 😂. You learned a valuable lesson today, Tux. If I can see through your OTT hyper, nothing to say, nothing to offer but playground insults then don't you think everyone else should be able to too? I'll let you give that some thought. Night intelligent sane people of the Rogoff page. Night Tuxedo Boy LOL

It's not the same result.
Obama is mansion shopping now.

<I am fine with the government helping very sick uninsured people.>

They're not interested in helping people.
Decades of inner-city dead should show you that.

This is about their wealth, their power.

The NHS doesn't work for you. People are routinely refused treatment due to budgetary restrictions, and then they die.

What happened to Jack Dunn would never happen in the USA, because everyone knows the court judgment against the hospital that sent him home would be too expensive. Every hospital and practitioner in the USA knows that American tort lawyers are like junkyard dogs. And since the 1980s, American hospitals are not allowed to refuse emergency treatment to anyone, regardless of their finances.

In spite of our crazy quilt medical system in the USA we have on average better outcomes for patients. https://www.pop.org/cancer-survival... http://www.nhs.uk/news/2013/09Septe... What we don't have is a medical financing system that makes sense, and mechanisms, as in Singapore, to inhibit excess and unnecessary medical treatment.

  perfidious: <Bobster....In certain scenarios I would be willing to consider tightening some availability on guns if even one single liberal somewhere <even just one> would stop ranting about their tired old liberal talking points on firearms for 2 seconds and acknowledge that different sections of the country have different needs for law enforcement and self protection....>

Gun control is very clearly not a one size fits all issue; while I believe waiting periods and thorough vetting will help matters, it is not the panacea for all the attendant ills of this, any more than a position such as <you get caught with a weapon, you get put away> should be universally enforced.

  Big Pawn: Gun control is an agenda for the left, whose ultimate goal is to confiscate all guns. There is no "gun problem" in America that libs actually care about. It's just an excuse to grab guns, one inch at a time.

If a liberal says that gun violence really is their concern, then tell me when the "gun problem" started?

What year was that?

When exactly did "gun violence" become a problem in America?

  HeMateMe: <People are routinely refused treatment due to budgetary restrictions, and then they die. >

I think examples of that are rarer than you think. also, you're ignoring the larger picture. Having 20% of the USA without health insurance means they aren't getting preventive diagnostics. People are walking around with diabetes, Hep C infection, high BP, cancer, HIV, syphilis, and they don't even know it until they are in extreme pain, show up in the nearest ER, and by then it's too late.

The Europeans have a longer life expectancy than we do, in many countries. That's part do to a healthier life style, but it's also due to getting simple preventive diagnostics. If you don't get this testing done, you are shortening your life. You can't get these routine tests done in the USA unless you have health insurance. It's that simple.

You have repeatedly advocated taking guns from all blacks as a proposal to lessen violence; yes, you, who have also averred time and again that race and racism do not exist.

Want to deny it? This forum is replete with examples of that view expressed by you, so try, you worthless, lying <pos>.
