Sergei Guriev New Economic School Moscow Stanford SIEPR Agenda Day

March 26, 2014

Stanley Fischer testified to the Senate Banking Committee on March 13, 2014. He did not disclose that he plagiarized his Ph.D. at MIT in 1969, that he has prevented Nils Hakansson his victim from getting recognition, and that Russia knew that during the 1990s when he was in control of IMF loans to Russia at the IMF.

The following day, March 14, 2014, Stanford SIEPR paid Fischer 100,000 dollars as an award but in effect for concealing information from the public and the Securities Exchange Commission.  Stanford is potentially liable for lawsuits arising from credit misratings at Moody’s on Russian government bonds and on securities issued or traded by its partner financial institutions including Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.  This could amount to billions or even trillions of dollars of liability to Stanford, MIT and these institutions.

Sergei Guriev was one of the speakers at Stanford SIEPR Agenda Day.  Guriev’s background indicates he likely was involved in analyzing the plagiarism by Stanley Fischer in the 1990s as well as in that by Stanford Professor J. Darrell Duffie now chairman of the MIS Committee of Moody’s that oversees the ratings of all financial securities in the world.  This exceeds 50 trillion dollars.

Moody’s threatened to downgrade the credit rating of the United States in September 2012 while Russia had this leverage on Duffie, Stanford and Moody’s.  Russia Today gleefully reports this.

Russia had this leverage over the US government credit rating and that of other US financial institutions.  Sergei Guriev at the time was Rector of the New Economic School in Moscow that helps the Russian government do kompromat plagiarism analysis on Duffie, Stanford, Stanley Fischer, MIT, etc.

1993 – 1994 Russian Academy of Science, Postgraduate Studies Degree: Ph.D. (Candidate of Science) in Physics and Math Thesis: “Some Mathematical Models of Saving and Investment”

Russia used kompromat on Stanley Fischer and Larry Summers via his uncle Paul Samuelson to get IMF loans in the 1990s. This thesis topic is on that same subject.

MIPT was founded by Peter Kapitsa who invented the method of academic plagiarism kompromat for Russia in the 1920s. This was used to help get atomic secrets. The Max Born Spy Ring and in effect the Kapitsa Spy Ring was part of this effort. Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Chicago concealed info from the FBI about the Fock Letter about Corson during the FBI investigation of Edward M. Corson following the confession of Klaus Fuchs, a close friend of Corson. Corson, Fuchs, and Peierls worked for a time on separation methods for uranium during WWII in the U.S. Peierls was also investigated and the universities kept the Fock Letter and plagiarism kompromat secret from the FBI and MI5 during this investigation.

” In 1997-98, Dr. Guriev visited the Department of Economics at M.I.T. for a one-year post-doctoral placement”

This is when Russia was using plagiarism kompromat on Stanley Fischer and Larry Summers, nephew of Paul Samuelson and Kenneth Arrow to get IMF loans.  Guriev’s thesis was on the same topic as the plagiarism by Stanley Fischer and Paul Samuelson.

He was a Morgan Stanley Professor of Economics and a Rector at the New Economic School (NES) in Moscow until he resigned on 30 April 2013 and fled to France.[1] He joined NES in 1998 focusing on research and teaching and became a full-time permanent faculty member in 1999. He became the school’s Rector in 2004.

Note at Stanford, at NES Moscow Guriev is still considered employed at NES Moscow.

Guriev interview June 2013 Der Spiegel


In a SPIEGEL interview, prominent Russian economist and former government adviser Sergei Guriev discusses the Kremlin’s retaliation campaign against the opposition and why he recently fled to France.

SPIEGEL: Mr. Guriev, why did you flee to France?



Guriev: I was under pressure for months. My wife had already predicted this development three years ago, despite the political thaw under then-President and current Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. She didn’t want our children to grow up in a country without freedom, so she decided to move to Paris. I, on the other hand, was still hopeful.

SPIEGEL: At the time, you were part of a small group of people who shaped Medvedev’s economic policy. When did you decide to flee?

Guriev: The turning point came in late April, when investigators turned up at my office with a search warrant and seized all of my email correspondence since 2008 — 45 gigabytes.

SPIEGEL: That’s the Siberian city near the Chinese border where oil magnate Mikhail Khodorkovsky was held in a prison camp for many years. You are now accused of having been paid by Khodorkovsky to prepare an expert report that recommends his release.

Guriev: That’s ridiculous. In 2003, Moscow’s New Economic School (NES) received $50,000 (€37,500) from a partner of Khodorkovsky’s. I didn’t receive a single kopek of that money. I was a visiting professor at Princeton University at the time, and only a year later did I become the rector at NES. Besides, I prepared the expert report in 2011 for then-President Medvedev, together with colleagues.

SPIEGEL: How is the New Economic School funded?

Guriev: We are a private university. We derive our funding from tuition and donations from Russia and abroad.

SPIEGEL: Of course the Kremlin doesn’t like that. Are you disappointed that Medvedev couldn’t or wouldn’t protect you?

Guriev: I prefer not to comment on that. He’s in a difficult situation. No one seems to mention the modernization he promised anymore. (President) Vladimir Putin decides everything.

SPIEGEL: Sergey Markov, a political scientist with ties to the Kremlin, has practically accused you of treason because of your ideas on the privatization of state-owned companies, which Medvedev took up, and he has described you as the intellectual center of the opposition to Putin. Do you intend to overthrow Putin?

Guriev: Of course not. I’m an academic, not a politician.

The governing body of the School is the Board of Directors. The Board meets bimonthly to make strategic and operational decisions. Presently, the Board of Directors includes:



Notice the President of NES is also Director of CEMI.  NES is in the CEMI building.  CEMI is a state funded entity from the Soviet Union.

In 1985, the year of Perestroika, he took up his current position as the Director of the Central Economics and Mathematical Institute in Moscow.

Valery Makarov was at one of the conferences in Poland in the 1970s to put pressure on American profs using Paul Samuelson plagiarism kompromat to get nominations for the Nobel Prize in econ for Kantorovich of the USSR.  Stanley Fischer plagiarism was part of that.

Later plagiarism by Darrell Duffie at Stanford putting a paper on dynamic programming into a Stanford Ph.D. thesis was a continuation of the same subject.

Sergei Guriev was at New Economic School, when Russia posted the Duffie document that is evidence of his plagiarism.

Duffie “dynamic asset pricing theory” “provisional manuscript”

This 1999 unpublished manuscript contains a citation to the paper copied in the Stanford thesis in 2000.  It shows Duffie had the paper that was copied and so is evidence of his plagiarism.

Duffie is a member of SIEPR.

Victor Polterovich is another example of overlap of CEMI and NES.

Guriev allowed Der Spiegel to be deceived that NES was in opposition to the Russian government of Putin. In fact, NES is in the CEMI building, the same person is head of both, and the same people have done kompromat analysis on profs in the US and UK since the 1970s.

Sergei Guriev — the former rector of Moscow’s New Economic School who fled to Paris in April — was also quick to comment on the news. “Khodorkovsky was released because Russia’s image has continuously deteriorated lately,” he said. There has been widespread speculation that Guriev will also be charged in a third trial against the oligarch.

Der Spiegel seems to work with Guriev to burnish his credibility as a Kremlin dissident.  But as we saw above with NES, CEMI, this involves deception of the readers.


Stanford seems to have provided material assistance to Russia at the SIEPR Agenda Day for Stanley Fischer.  There is an NES graduate at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington D.C.  They are likely afraid she will spill the beans to the FBI and Senate Banking Committee and the Securities Exchange Commission about  Stanley Fischer, MIT, Stanford, Duffie, and the role that NES plays in this.

Darrell Duffie is head of the MIS Committee of Moody’s which oversees ratings of financial securities including the bonds of Russia.

Director since October 2008

Darrell Duffie, Ph.D., age 59, is Chairman of the MIS Committee and is a member of the Audit and Governance and Compensation Committees of the Board of Directors. He is the Dean Witter Distinguished Professor of Finance at Stanford University Graduate School of Business and has been on the finance faculty at Stanford since receiving his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1984. He has authored books and research articles on topics in finance and related fields. Dr. Duffie is a member of The Federal Reserve Bank of New York Financial Advisory Roundtable, and the Board of The Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences and is a Fellow and member of the Council of the Econometric Society and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. He is Chairman of the Market Participants Group on Reference Rate Reform.  Dr. Duffie served as a trustee of iShares Trust and a director of iShares, Inc. from 2008 to 2011 and was President of the American Finance Association in 2009.

Holdings: 23,307 shares

Stanford has been requested to investigate this and to notify Moody’s, Securities Exchange Commission, Federal Reserve Board, Senate Banking Committee and FBI.  So far they have not replied to these requests.

Obama spoke at NES Moscow in 2009.

Stanford Professor Michael McFaul was US ambassador to Russia and spoke at NES Moscow in 2012.

The Duffie provisional manuscript was posted on the Internet in 2005 and so was posted at the time of these speeches. Stanford Professor Darrell Duffie was head of the MIS Committee at the time of the McFaul speech in 2012 and thus had control of the credit ratings of Russia and the US government.

As stated, a former NES person is at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington. That person could blow the whistle on all of them.  This is why they have to appoint Stanley Fischer Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. This is why Stanford at SIEPR Agenda Day paid Stanley Fischer 100,000 for concealing information on this from the Senate Banking Committee and the Securities Exchange Commission as well as the Federal Reserve Board and the FBI.
