KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 67 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.

Sep-19-20  Cheshire Matt: 'Uncomfortable Choices' by Chris Trotter (18/9/2020)

<Dangerous Times: This will be the choice confronting those coming of age in the 2020s. Embrace Neoliberalism’s belief in racial and sexual equality; adopt its secular and scientific world view; and cultivate the technocratic, multicultural, global outlook required of those who keep the machinery of hyper-capitalism humming. Or, throw your support behind the defenders of the national people’s community; agitate for an end to free-trade and globalisation; and use any means necessary (including violence) to uphold the social, sexual and racial hierarchies of your ancestors. That is to say – become a fascist.>

  nok: <keep the machinery of hyper-capitalism humming. Or, ...become a fascist.>

These are perfectly compatible. Fascism is one form capitalism takes when working class resistance is low.

Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krupp

Sep-19-20  Everett: <geza> you’re right. It’s disgusting. That will never make the news. Ho hum
Sep-19-20  Everett: I found this amusing. Perhaps some on this thread will find it amusing as well.

“I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.">

  chancho: The Turkey Vultures have begun circling:

<2016 Ted Cruz: "It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don't do this in an election year."

2020 Ted Cruz: "I believe that the president should next week nominee a successor to the court, and I think it is critical that the Senate takes up and confirms that successor before Election Day ... this nomination is why Donald Trump was elected.">

Sep-19-20  Everett: Why don’t we bring back exile as a punishment for crimes against the national good? That would be fitting for many of our politicians on both sides of the aisle.

I would vote for McConnell first, for his various subversions of the rule of law. AOC might be in the top ten though, for al her lies and manipulations of the truth.

Meanwhile, the two party system has truly destroyed this country. I look at this thread, at the news, and some of the suggestions lobbed about as to how to reconcile and move forward, and it’s clear as day that the path ahead is treacherous and full of ill-will and the inevitable increased violence.

Is everyone prepared to protect their loved ones this winter? The coming civil unrest is real. And if you are hoping the police will protect you, well, that’s become quite a bit more complicated, hasn’t it.

Sep-19-20  Everett: <chancel> OK, Cruz will make the top 10 as well
Sep-19-20  Everett: <<Dangerous Times: This will be the choice confronting those coming of age in the 2020s. Embrace Neoliberalism’s belief in racial and sexual equality; adopt its secular and scientific world view; and cultivate the technocratic, multicultural, global outlook required of those who keep the machinery of hyper-capitalism humming. <Enforce this at the point of a gun because the elites know what’s best for you, your children, and your community.> Or, throw your support behind the defenders of the national people’s community; agitate for an end to free-trade and globalisation; and use any means necessary (including violence) to uphold the social, sexual and racial hierarchies of your ancestors. That is to say – become a fascist.>>

There, fixed it.

In any case, it should have never come to this false choice.

Sep-19-20  Everett: Thing is, there are cultural hierarchies, and individual-behavioral hierarchies more than anything else.

But that’s not sexy. Easier to say “race” and “sex” are the issues if you haven’t gotten where you want to be in life.

Sep-19-20  Everett: <al wazir: <Everett: I’m also curious how comparing naturally- occurring majority in a sport is somehow equated to a forced removal of a particular “race” in a profession.> Another case of reading deficit disorder. I didn't equate them. I said that <No one seriously objected.>

And the public would accept all-black police forces, just as it accepted a Jewish Hollywood.>

No deficit here. <Forcing things> rather than having things occur <naturally> have an effect on objection/acceptance rates.

There may be a deficit in accepting/understanding human nature on display here, though.

You had an opportunity to discuss why so many White teachers are in mixed/minority schools from someone who’s been there. You passed on that.

Here’s a video discussing some aspects of your argument (more individuals in positions of authority from a particular group will help the same group)

That's not my argument. Read what I wrote: Kenneth S Rogoff (kibitz #434323).

Sep-19-20  Everett: < This might not end police brutality, but it would totally eliminate protests against white cops' brutality directed at black people.>

Oh, my video is not off the mark re: Eliminating protests.

People (perhaps like yourself) will claim, just like the video, that it is still White societies fault for the continued police brutality against Blacks. The AA cops were trained by a racist White society.

In any case, You’re morally wrong about the method (forced through affirmative action), and Incorrect about “precedents.”

The rest of the Black Wisdom Matters Series on youtube is excellent. Recommended.

Sep-19-20  Everett: <nok> thank, that’s good

  HeMateMe: I wonder if any reporters will write an article about how many careers were ruined by donald trump? It's a pretty big list.

Jeff sessions

Col Vidman

the female head of national intelligence, the one sacked because she wouldn't endorse separating the children from parents at the border

several diplomats who came forward to speak of wrongdoing by trump, re: Russia and also the Ukraine bribery scandal

several lawyers working at the Department of Justice who resigned, wouldn't be maneuvered by Trump toadie William Barr

people who didn't have to die or have their health ruined by Covid-19 if it had been handled better

It's a long list, I'm sure I've left out a few people, at least those that are known.

Someday Baron Trump will be interviewed about his father, when he's an adult. Should be interesting to hear what he has to say, someone who saw it all from a distance. I wonder if Trump even spends any time with the kid. You always saw Obama walking around with his two girls. Trump just plays golf and watches TV.

Thanks for the official word, which I found interesting.

As I was reading it, I thought <devere>'s list of disease names was <so> 1918.
