The court heard that Houghton had waged a string of verbal and physical attacks on Miss Moore since the pair were 14 and District Judge Bruce Morgan told her: “Since Emily Moore was 14 you have waged compelling threats and violent abuse towards her.
“Bullies are by their nature cowards, in school and society. The evil, odious effects of being bullied stay with you for life. On this day you did an act of gratuitous nastiness to satisfy your own twisted nature.”
Houghton, of Malvern in Worcestershire, had two previous convictions relating to her vendetta against Miss Moore. In 2005 she was convicted of assaulting her as she walked home from school and was subsequently expelled.
The bullying makes no sense at one level, but make sense in other contexts. The bully does it out of habit and the way they are, whether by nature or nurture. Society then lets them get away with more and more and doesn’t treat it as the real harm it is. Note the method of pretending they are the friend described in the article. This approach is common in academia and elsewhere.
Edmund Phelps, Insider-Economists’ Insider
Introduction by PAUL A. SAMUELSON
Thus, my much-cited 1969 paper on optimal intertemporal portfolio programming opportunistically used the Bellman-Beckman-Phelps recursive techniques to analyze what defines the best qualitative asset-portfolio mix of the Phelps 1962 aggregate saving. It was not plagiarism but it was horning in on a created public good there for the taking.
No it wasn’t. It was Nils Hakansson’s Ph.D. thesis at UCLA. It was not a public good for horning in. Paul Samuelson got an NSF grant for his horning in.
MIT had the thesis by 1966 because a professor there, Karl Shell, chaired the session at which Hakansson presented it. It was one of the top theses of all time in economics and caused a sensation in the profession. It was not a public good at all. Public good has an ironic meaning when Samuelson get an NSF grant for his 1969 “horning in”.

Asked about the economics of implementing a cap-and-trade approach to climate change at an Economic Club of Washington event today, White House economic adviser Larry Summers deliberately sought to avoid saying anything newsworthy. Instead, he cited a Massachusetts Institute of Technology Ph.D. thesis written in 1979 by a then-young economist named Ben Bernanke, now, of course, chairman of the Federal Reserve.
Bernanke cites the Samuelson 1969 paper in his thesis.
Page 149 of thesis cites Samuelson but in the citations, Hakansson does not appear.
Stanley Fischer in his 1989 textbook credits Samuelson 1969 and mentions Hakansson not at all.
The bullying described by the judge is exactly how Paul Samuelson, Stanley Fischer and the others at MIT treated Nils Hakansson from 1969 to present. They have bullied him repeatedly. The judges words describe Paul Samuelson’s actions towards Nils Hakansson. The others went along with it.
This is what gave Russia leverage over Larry Summers to get the low interest rate loans fro the IMF. This is why LTCM and other hedge funds bought Russian government bonds, based on their knowledge of this history of bullying. It was bullying in printed publications of the major institutions of society which control the credentials of the elites which made it far more harmful than Facebook.
Nils Hakansson was not even made a Fellow of the Econometric Society. So many at MIT in 1969 were made Fellows even though they did nothing of comparable worth.
Summers is still continuing the bullying. But now he is trying to intimidate those who know from coming forward. Summers is also bullying Assistant US Attorney Sara Miron Bloom not to investigate what is now on the Internet. Summers is doing this with Obama’s knowledge very likely. This includes bullying and intimidating the staff of DOJHQ, Federal Reserve, US Treasury, FBI, etc. They are all being bullied by Summers and Obama and Nation of Cowards Attorney General Eric Holder.

One important “pupil” who paid Fuchs an early visit was Qian Sanqiang. In 1959 Qian was the designated mastermind of Mao’s A-bomb program. In July of that year, Qian made his way to East Germany, where he met with Fuchs at length. (H. Terry Hawkins, now a senior fellow at Los Alamos, told Stillman in 2006, “I read this report in an unclassified publication, that this meeting took place shortly after Fuchs returned to East Germany. Fuchs gave Qian information that greatly assisted the Chinese program.” Also see http://www.oldatlanticlighthouse.wordpress.com/category/klaus-fuchs.) During those long summer days of 1959, Fuchs gave Qian a full tutorial on the design and operation of Fat Man. In all likelihood, he also added his thoughts on the role of radiation pressure in thermonuclear weapons.
Holder, Obama and Summers know AIP has linked to this blog on this. They know they are facing investigation for this. They are using bullying to keep the DOJ staff and FBI staff from investigating this.
Joel Brenner talk mentions Russia’s intense effort towards end.
“But he said Moscow appears less interested in U.S. commercial and military technology than other countries”
