KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 65 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.

Nope, the bloodshed and mass executions were ordered by US puppet dictator General Pinochet.

Jun-13-18  Nisjesram: Once upon a time ,In India , there used to be a huge park with gates, in Punjab - jalianwala baag

Lot of people, including children and women, once gathered there - a protest rally against British colonisl rule.

General dyer got the gates closed and ordered firing , killing men, women, children.

What a massacre.

<This "brutality stunned the entire nation",[6] resulting in a "wrenching loss of faith" of the general public in the intentions of the UK.[7] The ineffective inquiry and the initial accolades for Dyer by the House of Lords fuelled widespread anger,>

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jal...

<e UK has sidestepped London mayor Sadiq Khan's call for an official apology on the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre, saying the government has "rightly condemned" the "deeply shameful act" in British history in the past.>

Jun-13-18  Nisjesram: <hemateme> , does uncle Sam have blood of innocent people of Chile on its hands?

  HeMateMe: <mort> why is it you never complain about the heavy handedness employed by your British ancestors? How they invaded and occupied India, stealing it's natural resources and cheap labor at gunpoint? Same thing with the islands of the Caribbean. Murdering protesting aborigines of Australia that didn't want brit colonists there?

  al wazir: <The warheads - at least 20 in number, and perhaps as many as 60 - remain for now in their bunkers, somewhere in the rugged hills north of Pyongyang. Until today, there has been no public pledge from North Korea to dismantle them, or to allow inspectors to see them, or even to disclose where they are kept.

Work continues daily in the country's radiochemistry lab near Yongbyon, where plutonium for new bombs is extracted from spent fuel rods. Just across a small river from the lab, testing continues on a 20-megawatt reactor capable of producing nuclear fuel for scores of additional bombs.

The facilities are among hundreds that exist across a North Korean weapons complex that has shown itself capable not only of making sophisticated nuclear and chemical weapons, but also of expertly hiding them from public view. It is why weapons experts around the world expressed astonishment Wednesday at President Donald Trump's claim that the danger posed by Pyongyang's decades-long weapons buildup had been effectively eliminated - that there was, as Trump wrote in a Twitter posting, "no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. [...]

Hours after Trump's declaration of victory at the Singapore summit, some derided the notion of a suddenly defanged North Korea as naive and perhaps even delusional.

"North Korea's capabilities today are no different than they were a week ago," said Robert Einhorn, a Brookings Institution scholar and formerly a State Department arms-control official under Republican and Democratic administrations. Einhorn, who sat across the table from North Korean negotiators during previous talks on restraining the country's missiles program, said the elimination of the North Korean nuclear threat had occurred so far only within a "parallel universe" inside the president's mind.

"It is ludicrous that he doesn't recognize the situation," Einhorn said. "To him, somehow, not only have North Korea's intentions changed, but its capabilities are going away. I think he's naive on the intentions, and he's wrong about the capabilities."> https://www.washingtonpost.com/

Jun-13-18  Nisjesram: <zibar: <I always like to leave on a positive note, so here is a rousing, uplifting song, which is guaranteed to cheer you up>

It sure did , <buddy>.

I am all cheered up, now.

  Colonel Mortimer: <HeMateMe: <mort> why is it you never complain about the heavy handedness employed by your British ancestors?>

The evils of empire, particularly the British one, is not something I've ever denied.

The issue, as the forum will readily attest, is your inability to admit the evils of US hegemony.

You either deny it, or when you can't deny it in the face of overwhelming evidence, you attempt to justify it.

MY COUNTRY, right or wrong!

  Dr Winston OBoogie: Just watched Trump's press conference talking about Lil Kim. 😱! "He's a funny guy (eh?!) a great negotiator (!?) and... He <loves his people!>. The most authoritarian regime since Hitlers, he kills thousands and thousands of people every year, he has concentration camps, the people only get 1 TV channel, no internet, imprisoned for watching <Hollywood movies> I could go on and on and on but check out what this young girl says about the funny Kim who "Loves his people" https://www.facebook.com/washington...

I'm paraphrasing but this is just hilarious..

"They've got wonderful beaches you see them when they fire the cannons into the sea. I told him you could have hotels on there.. Great from a real estate perspective" D-fed on North Korea. 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂.

He's a complete embarrassment.

  Colonel Mortimer: <Dr Winston OBoogie:> <I could go on and on and on> You could, but then it would no longer be selective liberal outrage.

There are many regimes that are just as ugly as North Korea. Many of them 'friends' of Britain and the US.

Jun-14-18  Nisjesram: <colonel Mortimer > check it out : china's progress ...

<Beijing’s ‘Made in China 2025’ aims to make it world class in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, aerospace, electric vehicles and other hi-tech areas. Forget China’s old dominance in labour-intensive goods like apparel and toys. It now aims to be at the global cutting-edge of the most sophisticated technologies within seven years.

Keep Your Tencent, & Yuans

Whether it can achieve so much so quickly remains questionable. But alarm bells are ringing in the US, where President Donald Trump has sworn to stop China from purchasing top US tech companies, or getting US companies to part with high technology as a condition for investing in China..... The Washington Post recently highlighted China’s ‘Thousand Talents’ scheme to persuade thousands of scientists and engineers to come to China, and start or join prestigious research centres.

The scheme targets the myriad Chinese academics and engineers working abroad. But it also seeks to attract top foreign scientists, offering them salaries comparable with what they could earn abroad, plus a signing bonus of ¥1million (around Rs 1 crore). They can head research projects and institutions with guaranteed research funding for years ahead, which top scientists really prize. They get perks like housing, meals and regular trips back home.

Despite Trump’s noises, China has attracted several top US academics, including Chemistry Nobel Prize winner Fraser Stoddart, who will be visiting professor at the School of Pharmaceutical Science & Technology at Tianjin University.

China has made itself such an exciting place to work in that, despite the language barrier, droves of the world’s top brains want to spend time in the next potential superpower. A new graduate-cum-research university has been started by Duke University, US, with Wuhan University in China’s Hubei province. It advertised 20 faculty posts, and got a whopping 1,300 applications from across the world.

Apart from scientists and engineers, China also seeks to attract back entrepreneurs in its diaspora, such as the thousands in Silicon Valley. China seeks both academic and applied skills. The government says its ‘Thousand Talents’ scheme has almost overachieved its targets, netting over 7,000 scientists and entrepreneurs.>

  Colonel Mortimer: Not sure why <HeMateMe> is suddenly against colonialism, when he continues to support Israeli Apartheid & Occupation.
Jun-14-18  Larryfyffe: <HMM> apparently thinks South and Central American countries want to be taken over by the US, puppet governments established, food supply controlled by agribusiness, disregard for the environment, heath care for those who can afford it, guns for everybody, no political parties allowed that are not under the control of big money, production for export and corporate profit, poverty for everyone else, death squads trained by the US, torture of domestic'socialists' and 'communists', their children kidnapped, citizens fleeing up north.

Yeah, <HMM> , that is want they want.

Jun-14-18  Larryfyffe: The former British Empire has been largely dismantled and it's place taken over by US colonialism and neocolonialism. So guess who's going to be criticized in the here and now, <HMM>.

Your suggestion that the United States of America is just doing what Britain did is not a very good justification for the Teddy Roosevelt Roughrider foreign policy of the US.

Well put. And even if this 'American' system was of benefit to other cultures, why should they be *forced* to adopt it?

Surely if something is 'good' it would be freely adopted rather than imposed at the end of a barrel?

But this is the essence of <HeMateMe>'s argument - that socialism is so awful, that WE the US reserve the right to impose an equally awful system on your country, for the benefit of OUR US corporations.

Jun-14-18  Nisjesram: <colonel Mortimer><ell put. And even if this 'American' system was of benefit to other cultures, why should they be *forced* to adopt it>

Did British colonialists not say the same thing - "burden of the white man.."

Bloody scoundrels were massacring Indian women and children for their own good.
