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

Jun-27-16  Jim Bartle: The Supreme Court also overturned the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McConnell and his wife for corruption. They said the judge did not instruct the jury correctly on the definition of "official act."

McDonnell clearly took money and gifts in exchange for official acts. Too bad the prosecution apparently messed up.

Jun-27-16  Petrosianic: ljfyffe: <dice>Per usual...framented incoherent diversionary responses>

When we pointed out to you on Friday, politely, that your own responses were less than coherent, you blew a gasket and regarded it as inconceivable. What are the odds that diceman will simply take your word for the exact same claim that you considered inconceivable about yourself? You're undercutting yourself.

Jun-27-16  Petrosianic: <HeMateMe>: <As for Obama being "totally ineffective," as you put it, a president can only pass so much legislation if one major party won't compromise or talk about any of such legislation.>

Especially if the President himself is unwilling to compromise. I'm afraid the Obamacare debate set the tone for his whole presidency. Despite all the campaign promises of transparency, the bill was crafted in secret even from most of his own party, rolled out at the last possible moment before the vote, and people were asked to just sign onto it. No compromise, no transparency, no nothing.

The public was against it, he didn't care. The people of Massachusetts went to the extraordinary step of electing a Republican Senator to stop it. He still didn't care. Rather than compromise, he took the half-finished bill that had gone through the Senate already, ran it through the House, and used it as the final product. When you make it clear that you don't care about anyone's view but your own, you can't reasonably expect to be able to make deals with anybody. It would be one thing if that business were an aberration, and he'd acted differently since then, but he never seems to understand any view other than his own. There are ordinary posters here who are more broadminded than the President.

Recall they used Reconciliation tactics to shove it through, quite underhanded for legislation of that magnitude.

http://www.briansussman.com/politic...

Back to false narratives, when the Gruberisms came to public attention, the Obama administration initially denied any knowledge of his involvement (a recurring theme). And the liberal media press corps said. "Oh look! President Obama is transparent! He is so much better than that awful Bush person."

Then we learned Jonathan Gruber was paid $400,000 to lead the initiative and even met with President Obama to "make this thing work." So the Obama administration replied, "Oh, that Jonathan Gruber. We thought you meant another Jonathan Gruber." And the liberal media press corps said, "Oh look! President Obama is transparent! He is so much better than that awful Bush person."

<Obamacare is here to stay> 85% of Obamacare recipients are subsidized, where the government helps pay for their insurance. That is not sustainable. Whenever the money runs out, those folks will drop back to being uninsured, so nothing got fixed. Nothing.

Jun-27-16  Petrosianic: <Recall they used Reconciliation tactics to shove it through, quite underhanded for legislation of that magnitude.>

I don't think they did. I think they <talked> about doing that, if necessary, but never got around to it.

Reconciliation is something they usually do with Budgets. Just pass them on a straight up or down vote, so that a filibuster won't prevent there from being any budget at all (this was back in the days when it was unthinkable not to have a budget).

With Obamacare, one version of it passed the Senate on a 60/40 straight party line vote. Massachusetts elected Scott Brown to take away the filibuster proof majority (and got rid of him again after he'd done the one job he'd been elected to do). This Senate version was incomplete, they'd planned to bounce it back and forth between the House and Senate several more times to tweak it into what was supposed to be the final form.

As I recall, when Brown was elected, and they could no longer do this without compromising, they just took the incomplete Bill the Senate had passed, passed it in the House too, and made it the final bill. Maybe it would have been better if they <had> used Reconciliation. At least that way they would have finalized a bill that somebody wanted rather than one nobody had wanted.

Jun-27-16  Jim Bartle: <Massachusetts elected Scott Brown to take away the filibuster proof majority (and got rid of him again after he'd done the one job he'd been elected to do). >

That is incorrect as far as Obamacare is concerned. The Democrats lost their veto-proof majority when Ted Kennedy died, leaving them with a 59-40 advantage. The Senate passed Obamacare in December 2009, and Brown was elected in January 2010.

The Democrats actually had 60 votes in 2009 for only a couple of months, from the time Al Franken was finally seated until the death of Ted Kennedy.

Jun-27-16  Petrosianic: <The Democrats lost their veto-proof majority when Ted Kennedy died, leaving them with a 59-40 advantage.>

You're right, the way I worded that wasn't quite correct. The election was about either giving them <back> the filibuster proof majority, or keeping it away from them. Technically speaking, Brown's election is not what took it away.

Jun-27-16  ljfyffe: <BP> wants to lend his ulta-right Fascist leader to the left but he's stuck with Hitler, whose party was formed in reaction to the pre- existing socialist movrment , by calling themelves <national> socialists(Nazis) in opposition to socialists who focused on <class> struggle. Sounds exactly like <BP. That Hitler was concerned with ridding the country of 'inferior' races, and cheered on the alpha-male Aryan elite's power over the inferior economic classes puts Hitler and <BP> in the same position as the fascists. The older Fuhrer carries a bit of bad political baggage with him, however; so <BP> and his followers would rather be known as neoFascists under Trump's leadership.
Jun-27-16  ljfyffe: <dice> is doing a fine job all by himself in running down ghetto-dwellers with his Porsche, and then projecting his obvious bigotry onto others. It shows in his postings, aand his liberal filling of coffins.

Yes, and you are not.

Jun-27-16  ljfyffe: Meanwhile, <BP> wants government completely out of health care which will assist in <dice>'s coffin business rather than the government taking over heathcare as is done in many civilized counties. By poor people, <BP> ,and <OCF> too, really mean dark-skinned people, which tells you where they stand on the political spectrum.

  al wazir: <tpstar: 85% of Obamacare recipients are subsidized, where the government helps pay for their insurance. That is not sustainable.> Nonsense. Are you that ignorant?

Where does the government get that money? From taxes. This is just a way to get the healthy majority to pay the medical costs of the ailing minority. Did you not read what I wrote about insurance, or did you not understand it? *Every* national health system works that way. Some of them have been going for more than a half-century. England's has been in existence since 1948.

100% of the military budget is paid with tax money. Do you think that's not "sustainable" either?

Jun-27-16  Petrosianic: <ljfyffe: <jbc> Yes, thank you, I'm not, nor do I have any intention of joining you in the endeavour.>

If you're not, and agree that you're not (you agreed with me on Friday that you weren't even communicating coherently), then what are you trying to achieve through your posting?

Jun-27-16  Jim Bartle: Without getting into details, 85% getting subsidies does not mean 85% getting free medical care paid for by the government. It means the government is paying part of their health insurance.

<Depending on their income, people are expected to pay 2% to 9.5% of their income towards the premium for the second-lowest-cost silver plan in their area, and the federal government covers the remainder of the cost through a tax credit. People choosing more expensive plans pay the entire additional cost, while those choosing less expensive plans get the savings. >

Heh, heh, what happens if they get the job?

Is it a safe space employer?

Are all employees screened to be safe space?

Do they have a safe space desk?

Is there safe space transportation to and from work?

Safe space dining establishments for safe space meals?

Jun-27-16  HeMateMe: <the bill was crafted in secret even from most of his own party, rolled out at the last possible moment before the vote, and people were asked to just sign onto it. >

Bottom line: no had to vote for it if they didn't like it.

Of course the ACA is not perfect, it will need constant tweaking over the years, as most large government programs do.

The taxpayers? They don't like paying for folks who have no health insurance showing up at every ER in the country and treating it as their general practitioner clinic because they have no where else to go.

The ER employees don't what those people there because they clog up beds needed for people with real emergencies.

The taxpayers end up paying for all of these huge defaulted billings (most hospitals are subsidized non-profits) sent to folks who couldn't pay for health insurance in the first place. The system in place now allows for some coordination in care.
