At 2 conferences in Poland in 1972 and 1974, Russia may have been able to put pressure on profs from the West to nominate Soviet Kantorovich of the USSR for the 1975 Nobel Prize. This may have been taped and then played back for Andrei Shleifer in the 1990s. The pressure was over the plagiarism by Paul Samuelson, Stanley Fischer, and depending on interpretation Robert C. Merton, TN Srinivasan and David Levhari. Franklin Fisher had a relationship with David Levhari, was chairman of the SF thesis, on the RCM thesis and editor of Econometrica when Hakansson’s 1966 thesis paper was published in 1970.
The Russians then would have pressured Samuelson and Kenneth Arrow to nominate Kantorovich. They were uncles of Larry Summers. Summers’ parents may have helped arrange this. Srinivasan and Levhari were at Stanford when their paper replicating part of Hakansson came out in the 1960s after 1966 and published 1969. The others were at MIT.
