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.

Kibitzer's Corner

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: <I think it makes him a liberal.>

The existence or non-existence of climate change is a scientific question, not a political issue.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: <Hammering at the <shaw> forum? What hammering? You can't hammer away the facts I presented. >

You got ZERO support, and several critical of you.

  Big Pawn: <Jim Bartle: Hey <antonin>, please show me evidence--real evidence--that Bill Clinton ever raped anybody. I've never seen any.>

You admitted your assertions.

My work is done here.

NEXT!!!

No, it's entirely political.

  Big Pawn: <Jim Bartle: <Hammering at the <shaw> forum? What hammering? You can't hammer away the facts I presented. >

The support I had was the facts that no one could dispute.

Works for me.

Just spreading the truth, <jimmy jiffy>.

The Truth stands without need of support.

I feel very satisfied.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: <You admitted your assertions. >

<irony: the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really think especially in order to be funny>

<sarcasm: the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really want to say especially in order to insult someone, to show irritation, or to be funny>

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: <Works for me. >

But didn't work for anybody else, apparently.

May-24-16  Petrosianic: You're talking to someone I'm not seeing. I'll leave you to it.

Facts always work.

Don't like it? Too bad.

Deal with it.

No one contested the facts - remember that. I set the record straight and gave light to the truth.

I didn't realize how much it irritated you. This is a wonderful bonus. Thanks for making my night, <jimmy jiffy>.

  Big Pawn: Just like I shared the truth that voter ID is free in Alabama, and you've never been the same since.

The truth hurts sometimes, and it hurt you.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: OK, according to <higher level> rules, all sarcasm, ironic comments may be interpreted as factual and serious. That will lead to a lot of life among posts.

Here's a fact: You got hammered by about six people on the <shaw> page, including <focus>, who usually agrees with you.

And <nobody> agreed with you.

  Big Pawn: It's not sarcasm. You try to hide behind irony and sarcasm all the time.

You're only fooling yourself.

(Squish. Pop!)

There he goes again.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: <It's not sarcasm. You try to hide behind irony and sarcasm all the time.>

Tell me which comment you say is not sarcasm, that I say is.

I need a good laugh. Maybe some other poster do as well.

They don't disagree with me per se, they don't disagree at all.

They just don't like my sharing the facts.

There's a difference and I'm very satisfied with it.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: Just one, <antonin>.

  Big Pawn: <jim>, I can tell you're getting drunk tonight. Don't fall in the fire, okay?

<jim>, you are man enough to finally outright admit that I was right and you were wrong, and that Alabama voter ID is free - right?

Yes or no will do just fine.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: No, you were not right? Why didn't you go to the FREE William Lane Craig seminar in Spokane? It's the exact same question.

I can tell you're getting frustrated when you go back to your golden oldies.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: Come on <antonin>, show me where I hid behind "sarcasm" to avoid the meaning of a post.

Come on, I'm waiting. I need the laugh.

Now that is something Trump actually does. He claimed global warming was invented by the Chinese, then when called on it said it was clearly a joke. Months later.

Was it free?

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: My "sarcasm" excuse.

Put up or shut up.

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: I've answered a hundred times.

Remember when you wrote this? <I'm not being honest when I debate>

Was it free?

May-24-16  Jim Bartle: In the exact same sense the Craig seminar (which you didn't attend) was free.
