KENNETH ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 61 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age 6, but took up the game in earnest when he got 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. However, at 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.

  Jim Bartle: <She simply accuses Cosby of things like "manipulate me into believing he cared about me">

Not enough jail cells in the world for that one, men's or women's.

(Don't know about this specific case.)

Oct-21-14  Petrosianic: How about focusing on stronger minimum penalties, rather than stronger maximum ones? Because it's the stories about people who do get convicted and then slapped on the wrist that really annoy people.

The prosecutor may still have the final call about whether to prosecute something, but how about at least mandatory investigations? I always remember the Inouye case because it came at a time right after the Anita Hill business, when Congress was trying to show that they really cared about this issue by making a big show of the Packwood hearings. At the same time, the Inouye case was barely a blip on the radar, because a) he was in the majority party, b) he came from a heavily one-party state, and c) Congress already had their "show case" (the Packwood one) in place to help pretend that they cared about this.

Here's an old New Zork Times article on Inouye, and it's hard to find too much, just because it was such a big so-what. I'd submit that this kind of thing is a much bigger deal than miscommunication issues, in which somebody failed to get consent the 21st time after getting it on the previous 20.

Oct-21-14  Rookiepawn: <Petrosianic> <Especially on college campuses, where a new Puritanism is forming, only this time coming from the Left>

I agree 100%. Being myself an eclectic leftist I find these one of the worst traits of the political left: confusing women with proletarians.

  Shams: <Petrosianic> <How about focusing on stronger minimum penalties, rather than stronger maximum ones? Because it's the stories about people who do get convicted and then slapped on the wrist that really annoy people.>

Sure, but you aren't equally disturbed by stories of people upon whom minimum sentencing laws thrust a gross <injustice>?

I myself am not a fan of minimum sentencing laws. If justice can be reduced to an equation then bring on that Twilight Zone episode where the oracle in the cave turns out to be a supercomputer.

Oct-21-14  Rookiepawn: <How about focusing on stronger minimum penalties, rather than stronger maximum ones?>

And how about making false allegations of "rape / abuse / he looked at me weirdly" pay? Many cases of women falsely accusing men of rape, ruining their personal and professional lives who walk away without being even annoyed by their conscience.

This, not to mention penalties for murdering a partner (always lower when the accused person is a woman, who has always the "self defense" resource since males are always aggressors) or jail conditions.

Advantages for men, even imaginary, are constantly voiced through media; advantages for women, we take them for granted as part of some natural unchangeable order.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: < Shams: <Donkey Cult> <It does seem, though, that the world is so complex we have to take other peoples' word for some things.> Now there's an understatement!>

At least I got something right

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: <Maybe you overlooked my previous post on the subject of fatwas.>

I did post earlier that they can be used for guidance by Muslims. Did you assume something else?

  Shams: <Rookiepawn> <And how about making false allegations of "rape / abuse / he looked at me weirdly" pay?>

Yes, let's do something to weigh against all the incentives women already have to come forward.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: <You reached this surmise based on the times of his posts? That has to be about the thinnest "logic" I've seen on this page to date ... and this is *not* for want of competition>

Well, it's the only data available. It's a big leap, and probably I'm wrong.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: < Shams: It's amazing to me how many people seem to think that an argument is strengthened or weakened by where the person making it is from.>

You must be referring to me. I don't recall making such a statement or even an implication. Are you just making things up?

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: < Abdel Irada: <Donkey Cult: I'll address this to Colonel Mortimer and any other Muslims that post here: How many wives do you have?>

As far as I know, <Colonel Mortimer> is not a Muslim. In fact, I believe I'm the only one here.

The answer to your question: one. (Speaking of wives, have you stopped beating yours?)>

Colonel Mortimer has already set me straight here.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: < Abdel Irada: <<Abdel> It's amazing to me how many people seem to think that an argument is strengthened or weakened by where the person making it is from.> The geographic stereotype. Logically, it's roughly on par with "You're a Muslim. You would say those things."

The <!!> on which it's based appears to be: If you're in category X, you must think Y and do Z.

I could hardly name a better example of mental indolence.>

It's obvious you are posting about me. I don't remember making any such argument.

Oct-21-14  Petrosianic: <And how about making false allegations of "rape / abuse / he looked at me weirdly" pay? Many cases of women falsely accusing men of rape, ruining their personal and professional lives who walk away without being even annoyed by their conscience.>

During the Anita Hill business, the take was that women NEVER lie about these things. Seriously, they had "expert" testimony in the form of feminist college professors, willing to get up and say that in public. They quieted down pretty fast when Monica Lewinsky, Juanita Broadrick and all the others surfaced, and forgot their consciences pretty easily.

The problem is it's really the press that makes the difference between a Lenore Kwock (who nobody hears about, and someone who makes national headlines. Even if Kwock had been lying, she did Inouye little or no damage precisely because the press helped bury the story to protect him. So the accuser doesn't always have a choice about how much damage they do to the accused. Of course if they take money for the story, then yes.

So, speaking of that, under existing laws, suppose that someone accuses a US Senator of rape, gets big bucks for telling their story to the National Enquirer or somebody, and then is shown to be lying. Is there any kind of legal recourse for the papers to recover the money they spent?

  Shams: <Donkey Cult> That post of mine was what, a couple days ago? Honestly, I don't recall whose post I read that prompted it. (If it's important to you I'll look it up over lunch.)

But the king of that thinking on this forum is none other than <HeMateMe>. I think he has temporarily curbed it after encountering much resistance, but its time will come again. He likes to rotate his logical fallacies, as a farmer rotates his crops for sustainability.

Oct-21-14  Rookiepawn: <Shams> <Rookiepawn> <And how about making false allegations of "rape / abuse / he looked at me weirdly" pay?>

<Yes, let's do something to weigh against all the incentives women already have to come forward.>

OK, let's forget about proof, due process and even logic. A female's index finger pointed to a guy is enough. Otherwise it would weigh against women's will to come forward.

So if someone falsely and consciously accuses you of anything and ruins your life, nothing should be done. The important thing is "women coming forward", no matter with what. If they lie... Oh well: man up dude, you should already know as a masculine creature you are a second-class human being. At best.

Btw: how many blacks were hanged on false accusations of rape by white women? They "came forward" anytime they could.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: <Abdel Irada:
You must think that there are no good analogies.>

No. That's <Donkey Cult> you're thinking of: <Donkey Cult: < Colonel Mortimer: <twinlark:> Science and religious belief are not analogous.> Of course they are, Colonel. An analogy is a false comparison, based on some similarities and used for the purpose of illustrating a point.>

I didn't say there are no good analogies, they are sometimes useful. All I meant was science and religion can be used as an analogy.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: < Colonel Mortimer:
The problem my detractors are having with regard to the I/P issue is that they have no moral arguments in favour of the Israeli occupation.>

I'll get to this later, we'll have fun.

Oct-21-14  Rookiepawn: <Shams> False allegations of rape are as much a gender attack as rape. Even more: it is an attack on women who were really raped.

Punishing false allegations is simply making the law work equally for everybody, and it is also protecting those who are really victims. Your solution "let every women come forward, take all they say as truth, do whatever they want" let men as second-class citizens with no rights.

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: <Shams: <Donkey Cult> That post of mine was what, a couple days ago?>

Actually yesterday, but it was a few pages ago. I went back to my last post to see if there were any replies and there you were.

I don't mean to be rude. Please don't toss off some criticism and then complain if I reply.

I'm fine disagreeing with you on this, but please don't put words in my mouth. I'd like to leave you on my favorites list. I'm going to go back to work now. You believe Cosby; I believe her accusers. The world still turns.

When did I complain? I haven't complained. I don't typically come here to read the people I already agree with. As far as I'm concerned, you and I are at square one.

Would you mind reposting your words that you think I misrepresented?

Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: <Shams: <Donkey Cult> That post of mine was what, a couple days ago?>

I thought this was a complaint. Sorry.

  Shams: <Donkey> Sometimes I remember the specifics of arguments here months later, but not so much with throwaway comments. And I certainly don't expect people to come here everyday if they want to participate, so please don't think that. I don't care for hit-and-run posts but I haven't seen you do that.
Oct-21-14  Donkey Cult: <Saleh al-Fawzan, an Islamic cleric in Saudi Arabia, has issued a fatwa against "all you can eat" buffets, saying they are un-Islamic.>

I'll take responsibility for what I say. Frequently I'm wrong, but I'll admit it.
