KENNETH 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.

  Big Pawn: <Clemens Scheitz: Hi <Colonel Mortimer>, I have a question for you. Why do you keep trying to extract objectivity and common sense from <BigPawn> and <OptimalPlay> in religious matters?>

Mort's other sock puppet. Who does he think he's kidding?

LOL!

May-30-16  Jim Bartle: <When Trump is being investigated for by the FBI let me know, I'll have something to say.>

Who's deflecting now?

May-30-16  Jim Bartle: <I'm just glad Trump came along and shook up the world - like Muhammad Ali.>

Oh yeah. Ali and Trump, two peas in a pod.

  perfidious: <little pharisee: The terrorist sympathizers are <mort> and <perfidious> along with zealous anti Americans <jim bartle> and <abdel>.

They hate America and love to see it receive "justice" for all the evil it has done to the otherwise peaceful, loving world.>

After the fashion of your hero Dr Goebbels, you keep repeating those lies often enough, maybe they will stick in the minds of those who cannot or will not think for themselves.

Yet another set of falsehoods from the maw of <Pinocchio>, aka <big liar>.

Got a clay model of the pre-arson Reichstag on your mantel at home, <boy>? Very nice red herring the Nazis used.

May-30-16  Jim Bartle: <Besides, the election is in the hands of the corrupt donor class running the country. Clinton is pre-selected. I've already accepted a president Clinton and I'm over it already.>

<higher level> sets up the scenario so he is the winner no matter what happens.

If Trump wins, "Wooooooo! I was right, Trump is the voice of the people, like I said!"

If Hillary wins, "I told you the fix is in."

No matter the result, <higher level> can say he was right.

  perfidious: <Jim: <higher level> sets up the scenario so he is the winner no matter what happens....>

Always winning, in a world controlled by himself, is what <little pharisee> is after.

Guess he cannot grasp the concept <You can shear a sheep many a time, but you can only skin him once>. <higher level> types need not detain themselves over such mundane ideas in any event. There are far more productive ways of occupying oneself, such as pining for the deaths of entire peoples.

May-30-16  thegoodanarchist: <Colonel Mortimer: <thegoodanarchist:> <US <national government to protect its country and citizens from attack> goes about killing Taliban and AQ leaders in Afg. & Pakistan>

And civilians..

Remember, the US didn't go after Osama, they bombed the @#$% out of Afghanistan instead.

The people of Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11, neither the people of Iraq>

Wrong, the Bush Neocon administration did go after OBL, until he escaped Tora Bora.

Then the morons blundered as badly as any administration in US history, and took their eye off of OBL and stupidly invaded Iraq.

But Barrack Obama bailed them out partially, by fixing their worst mistake, and OBL is no more.

The bigger picture is that you don't seem to understand modern warfare.

I agree that the people of Iraq had nothing to to with 9/11, but in Afghanistan some of their people did.

Look, the entire citizenry is rarely unified for any war. So you can always make the argument, in any war, that at least some of the people had nothing to do with it.

Many Germans had nothing to do with WWII, but too bad, their government did, and so even though the outcome was determined by 1944, the war was conducted to the end, millions died unnecessarily, and that is how war works. Not just for the US and her enemies, but for everyone.

That is how war is, the world over, but you use this as an excuse to single out America for hate, simply because we are the best at it.

When the Russians do it, your retort is that their efforts pale in comparison to what the US does.

So really, I have gotten to the crux of the matter with you. You hate America not because of the way we wage war, for every serious combatant does the same.

No, the reason is because we are the best at it. And that's what you can't stand.

Well I will tell you one thing - US Hegemony over the world is way way better than, say, a Fascist Germany/Japan Hegemony, a Soviet Hegemony, a communist China Hegemony. You better pray we don't lose the race to China while you're still around on this small ball of dirt.

  Colonel Mortimer: <thegoodanarchist:> I should be thankful that the US has 700 military bases in the world instead of Russia or China??

This is about empire, not jingoism. And no, the US does't get to be exceptional in evil doing either.

Wait until Trump will sell them to Putin to pay the US debts to China.

May-30-16  HeMateMe: <mort> what's your stance on Taiwan and the USA? if they are attacked by China should the USA step in and defend them?

<higher level> sets up the scenario so he is the winner no matter what happens.

If Trump wins, "Wooooooo! I was right, Trump is the voice of the people, like I said!">

It's very satisfying to see that I rent space in your head along with <the gambler>.

These poor sweathogs...

Jim, I've clearly said that if Trump wins, I was wrong and I *hope* to be wrong.

But you are like the <mort head>, all "binary" and whatnot.

heh, heh, heh,

Hillary can't even put away a single socialist. Trump put away his 17 rivals and did it all his way.

Yet, Hillary will win easily because the whole system is rigged. Bernie supporters (former Clinton supporters mind you) are already saying that Hillary won some close primaries because of voter fraud.

Just read the flame wars on social media to get a feel for it.

Anyhow, the people clearly want Trump. He's creating enormous excitement and is on the news 24/7. Hillary is like sour milk and she can't even get the democrats behind her as she runs up against an old, wacky *socialist*.

Think about that.

Yet, Hillary wins because the vote doesn't really count. Given the outside chance that I'm wrong and the vote matters, I will still vote.

But as far as I'm concerned Hillary is already in. FBI trouble? No big deal, Obama will pardon her.

  MissScarlett: I don't understand why NATO doesn't invite Russia to join it. If it did, would Russia accept? Please advise.

They are not lies.

Liberals are always saying "Goebbels - bla bla bla, yap yap yap, Goebbels".

It's clear that you, <jim> and <mort> side against America and are enemies of the state at heart. You guys are always justifying Islamic terror against the US, each in your own way.

You should be on a terror watch list, <perfidious>, given your blatant anti Americanism and the fact that you are a Muslim sympathizer. You are the enemy within.

With any luck, there will be a massive change in this country, soon.

May-30-16  HeMateMe: some people also said that Jeb Bush was "preselected." Turns out he wasn't.
May-30-16  Jim Bartle: <It's clear that you, <jim> and <mort> side against America and are enemies of the state at heart. >

Any evidence of that relating to me <higher level>?

I don't think so. (Unless you think voting for the party you don't like makes me an enemy of the state).

Yes, your 50,000 anti american posts, especially the ones where you side with outright terrorist sympathizer and America hater <mort>.

May-30-16  HeMateMe: it is interesting how our thinking evolves. Fifty years ago people would have thought Bernie Sanders was a commie and he would have gotten 1% of the vote, if that much.
May-30-16  ljfyffe: Christainity is about salvation through Jesus, something that antiChrist fascist <Big Prevaricator> could not comprehend in anyway whatsoever as the vile drips down from his forked tongue onto the keyboard.

  Big Pawn: Bernie is a commie, and the reason he's got a following at all is because of liberal indoctrination in the schools, which are run by feminists and liberals.

See, all the hippies that were naked in the mud at woodstock are now in charge, so they've used propaganda to brainwash an entire generation of youth. Yuri Bezmenov talked about this happen, right now, back in 1983.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bX3...

May-30-16  Jim Bartle: <Yes, your 50,000 anti american posts,>

How about quoting a few?

I think in the end your claim I am anti-American will drift into the ether the way your "opposition to Israeli policy is Jew Hating" claim has. No evidence, no effort to show proof, just an empty claim.

May-30-16  HeMateMe: <See, all the hippies that were naked in the mud at woodstock are now in charge>

that's not true. People had long thought that when the Vietnam generation reached middle age we wouldn't have any fighting. But, we were in Afg. and Iraq, though certainly not of our own choosing. the Taliban destroyed the WTC and Hussein was a continued threat to our oil supply and stability in the Mideast.
