KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 63 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.

Yes, HK is fantastic in many ways. The prostestants will even help the police to remove the barriers in the street put up against the protestants.

Amazing, how the news agents always find a *common denominator* to evaluate matters. Yes, *journalists* have to write something and sell the story to make a living. Just our resident <journalist/editor> <Abdel> does not sell anything. Not even the *truth* which of course is *his* truth.

BS, rightwing narrative, grievance, fake.

My bad, I guess we actually didn't see the DNC putting an illegal immigrant on stage to wag her finger at Donald Trump.

Grievance.

(Once again, this whole "grievance" thing is stupid, but since the right is using it I guess I can abuse it.)

Six = 1/2 dozen... same thing.

When the Democratic Party shifted left to embrace identify politics and grievance they lost a lot of the white working class. If you pander to too many, others feel left out. Hillary was mostly worried about showcasing how offended people were about Trump or other perceived slights.

If that's not the reason she lost the EC, then please tell me why.

  saffuna: You have made a number of questionable comments, but that has to be the most ridiculous of all.

Keeping families in the United States and importing millions from outside the United States is not the same thing in any way, shape or form.

  saffuna: <If that's not the reason she lost the EC, then please tell me why.>

i would like to ask why the conservatives are always changing the subject.

You made a claim: That the Democrats want to import millions of voluntary immigrants.

I questioned that claim.

You pointed to a speech at the Democratic Convention that did not even mention new immigration. I pointed that out.

You claimed it was the same thing.

I said it wasn't anything close to the same thing.

You changed the subject to "why did Hillary lose?"

Dec-03-16  Bobsterman3000: <Keeping families in the United States and importing millions from outside the United States is not the same thing in any way, shape or form.>

I cannot think of any other country in the world that would showcase an illegal immigrant at a serious, legitimate political event.

I cannot think of any other party who couldn't see how obsessing over the rights of new <voluntary> immigrants could alienate some voters who've always been citizens, paid taxes and are now starting to feel that government policy is not responsive to their needs.

I can. Many EU politicians would do just that. Certainly Merkel would.

Bob you are falling for the Trump 'boogeyman' tactic, the same thing Hitler used to get elected, blaming all of Weimar Germany's ills on the Jewish peoples.

We have what, 330 million people? Would 20,000 new immigrants make that much of a difference? 100,000? Certain parts of the USA are economically depressed because they were dependent on a certain manufacturer or industry that has since left for Mexico, China or India. It has nothing to do with illegal immigrants.

the level of violent crime has been steadily dropping in the USA for decades, despite the sensationalist news stories we read--alleged crime was another thing that Trump blamed on immigrants, legal or illegal.

I'm more concerned with intellectual property and white collar jobs being farmed out to India and the like. Jobs that could definitely be done here are being sent elsewhere. Seems like you either get a job with a big multinational, or you're in men's underwear at K-mart, these days.

Clinton wanted to help the little guy <bob> by taxing the top 5% earners a little harder. Instead, the top 5% will get MORE because the tax cuts Trump proposes will be across the board, not progressive, meaning that if the lower middle class and the wealthy get to save the same amount of earnings via a tax cut, the wealthy have done better in the deal--they have held serve. the wealth will be pricing new Audis, the poor will get a few extra bags of Ramen noodles.

To pay for the tax cuts we will borrow, worsen the national deficit and end up in a recession, depending on how big these tax cuts are.

He got your vote, Bob. Is it too late for you to get a tuition refund from Trump University?

Dec-03-16  Bobsterman3000: <Bob you are falling for the Trump 'boogeyman' tactic, the same thing Hitler used to get elected, blaming all of Weimar Germany's ills on the Jewish peoples.>

Not true at all, I'm more blaming Bush for our last economic meltdown. Illegal immigrants are just here to work and get a future for their families.

But one thing is to remember is that we already have unskilled people at the bottom of the economic ranks, and heavy unskilled immigration just depresses their wages.

I'd even support a limited amnesty if I knew that we'd afterwards close and secure the border to stem the future flow.

<I'm more concerned with intellectual property and white collar jobs being farmed out to India and the like. >

Yes, I work in an IT-related industry now and I'd like to see a way for more Americans from other industries to get re-tooled to do IT, rather than move the work offshore or just bring in more on H-1B visa.

As much as I appreciate your posts I have to admit that this one is beyond me. Sure, I have my limits but a short explanations from your side may help to overcome it.

Let me explain this in terms you can understand.

Your... Jokes... Suck...

This one was painful to read. Do you understand how much you embarrassed yourself with this post?

I get that you want to try. Really, I do get that. We all want to be funny, the life of the party (everyone except <Colonel Mort>).>

LOL!

I'm glad someone finally told him!

I'd been piling on about his Med-walk so much I didn't want to also jump on him about his "jokes" being so lame!

They're cringeworthy!

I mean, the bloke tries, Lord knows he tries, but it's hard to understand how someone can be so unfunny and not be aware of it?!

Having said that, he's probably the life of the party down at the local Mosque!

That gives you a good idea about Islamic humour!
