KENNETH ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 62 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. 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.

It must be a very Christian nation (Liebe deine Nächste!).

  al wazir: Immigration is a big political issue in Europe. It's biggest in Britain, but the U.K. is close to last in number of refugees admitted per capita.

Here are the numbers: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...

Aug-29-15  arifattar: The Taliban were actually slowly dismantling opium production during their rule. The fact that it actually increased after the occupation, has led some even cite this as a reason for the invasion.
Aug-29-15  arifattar: Immigration is a big issue in Europe and still they want to keep Iran-supported Assad in place and let him butcher Syrians daily.
Aug-29-15  HeMateMe: I think Russia supports him, too.
Aug-29-15  arifattar: Well, CIA has been sending people to Assad to be tortured. So......
Aug-29-15  HeMateMe: you got that classified info from the Onion?

  Abdel Irada: <arifattar: The Taliban were actually slowly dismantling opium production during their rule.>

Odd. From what I read in contemporary reports, they used opium as a funding source.

But it is not odd that it should have increased after the invasion, because it is well documented that the CIA (which operates with a free hand in Afghanistan) does use drug production, export and sales as a primary "black" funding source. It's done this from South America to Southeast Asia, so why would Afghanistan be any different?

Nice that we have so much in common. :-)

Aug-29-15  ljfyffe: <CIA deals in drugs> I called the CIA and their spokesman said this was absoluely false and is just a rumour spread by 'America haters"; <HMM>, putting on his white cowboy hat, agrees, and assures everyone that "we" wouldn't take part in such dasterdly deeds.

These are equally "well documented."

someone quoted it from a Bob Woodward expose, and that makes it a fact? You really think the CIA is doing this in 2015? I bet you have a second gunman in he Kennedy assassination, too.

So were covert arms deals to Iran. Iran Contra was a conspiracy theory too.

No one really got punished in the end so secret government is absolutely okay in the US.

Aug-29-15  ljfyffe: Thank goodness...I feel so much better now that <HMM> has denied everything...he's not one to be taken in....in spite of the fact that the CIA built that jello tree especially for him!

  Abdel Irada: <Jim Bartle: Oh man. On the Bill Maher show Rick Santorum claimed Reagan never negotiated with terrorists. Is denying reality a strategy for these guys?>

Yes, <Jim>. But "reality" is such a presumptuous word. How dare we think that what we experienced is what really happened, when our betters tell us they saw nothing of the kind?

Seriously, the tactic is called "gaslighting," and it is a favorite resort of a certain kind of personality that sees nothing wrong with creating "alternative realities" to suit its needs.

Aug-30-15  HeMateMe: Jiffy, the reference was to now, 2015, not the Reagan days.
