A Professor Said What?

  • A University of Chicago economist says Antarctica or Guam would be better places than Chicago for the upcoming G8 and NATO summits, now scheduled for mid-May in the Windy City.

    Economist Alan Sanderson often questions large scale government subsidies for sports venues like Soldier Field for the Bears and U.S. Cellular Field for the White Sox. In the case of the NATO and G8 summits, Sanderson says there’s a lot of downside for the city’s reputation and little upside in the way of economic development.

    “It’s just a potential disaster,” Sanderson said. “Again, I hope it’s not. I hope things go really well and the city gets a real positive spin from it, but if you were betting in Las Vegas, you’d bet that’s not going to be the outcome.”

So since we and our readers have been saying this for over a year now, are we all that much smarter than a University of Chicago economist professor?

And this is amusing:

  • The city says security precautions will cost $65 million, to be picked up by private donors and the federal government.
"Private donors?"

Wow, an egg head that might actually have thought about this and came up with a correct answer.

There ought to be an uprising of the taxpayers demanding that these events be cancelled, right now. I don't give a shit how bad it will look. I don't want to see how bad it will be in May. The city can't handle these events and the cost to businesses and the taxpayers is going to be huge.

And 9.5 collapsed in a heap suffering a massive shit hemmorhage upon finding out a "traitor" is in the U of C "Go Rahm Go" think tank's cheerleader ranks... There no doubt will be an unfortunate series of "spectacular unxeplained accidents" & dirty tricksterism that would make the Mossad green with envy until the "traitor" is purged...

Ya gotta wonder if his Gold Coast & North Shore fundraising apparatchiks are paying attenting to the whispering in the "servants quarters" about how their Downtown & Boul Mich real estate holdings are in peril regardless of the massive amounts of bullshit & sunshine 9.5 is pouring up their asses?

Did anyone else see this lame ass roll call training video yesterday? The one about the multitudes of Latin American cultures? About weed that is not weed. About bean bags these goofs put down their pants. Hey, I got a bag in my pants too, but it has BALLS in it. Can I get some exempt that has balls? Is this PBS or CPD??

I want to know about the BAD GUYS!!! Teach me about the MS13! Teach me about the many Mexican Cartels. Fuck, teach me some shit about the Latin Kings! ANYTHING USEFULL!!!!! Why do we have TWO gang units?? Can they put some videos together about the gangs? Their leaders? Where they live? What cars they drive? So I can find them and LOCK THEM UP??? Why do
I learn more about gangs of Chicago from the History Channel than MY OWN HALF WITTED DEPARTMENT?!

I do not want to hear shit from any exempt or pol or media hack about why the city had to burn in May. I will use yesterday's lame video as exhibit # 1.

Is this still a police department?????

Sanderson was saying that a year ago when this Debacle-to-be was announced, he was just not quoted in the papers yet. He was anti-Olympics before that, anti-state subsidies for private businesses in general. And as someone who works at a university, though not the U of C, let me assure your commenters that Obama and Rahm are not universally loved on campuses. The entire conservative economic philosophy your site favors was built from theories produced at the University of Chicago. Remember all those Nobel Prize winners? Damn those Hyde Park libtards!

It's a mourning band to pay tribute to an officer who was killed in the line of duty or died on duty. It's not a tool to hide your star number or send a message to the bosses. If you wear it after the seven days following the duty death of a Department member you are out of uniform. Most bosses will have you take it off, and they are right. Don't dirty-up the meaning of it for personal messaging. Pick something else-- put a smiley face sticker upside down on the butt of your gun or something. You won't be allowed to wear the mourning band anyway, but you shouldn't want to disrespect the meaning in the first place.

Doesn't take much of a leap to figure if they're not being sent for training they most likely won't be eligible to be sent when, not if, the shit hits the fan.
Who's fuckIng idea was this? Shouldn't the entire department be trained and ostensibly eligible to be sent for this? I mean it is such an emergency that they cancelled a furlo segment over 6 months in advance! Talk about a double standard.

We are Fucking Police!!! Does our military watch video on taking thier boots off in taliban soil? The ship that flipped next to Tuscony by Italy is our new symbol. Sad, sad sad.

1/17/2012 12:27:00 AM

============================

They would probably like to except with the new anti-constitution laws in Chicago regarding free speech and protest (which are now called parades) no-one can afford the free speech fees (called parade permits) OR the bureaucracy that is being put into placed and about to be rubber-stamp to ensure that said free speech is only for those with the money.

AKA the one-percent.

Seriously, have you looked at hizzhonors new laws?

If they stick you can forget about protest in Chicago which at first glance sounds really good in this trade.

However, if there ever comes a time where you feel cheated unfairly..oh like the OEMC layoffs for example...forget it.

Million dollar insurance policies?

Pre-registering all your electronic sound equipment along with any apparatus designed to attract attention (which leaves it wide open to interpretation), etc..etc..etc..

It basically IS in fact a police state.

I can see it now. The mayor doesn't like your shirt or skirt or you have a hat that he determines is attracting attention so therefore you must be trying to parade without a permit -- so it's a $2,000 fine for you as you go in the clink.

The terrorist have won! They don't have to do anything. Our elected politicians are the ones wanting to "send us back to the 15th century" me thinks.

Yeah but doesn't that fall under hizzhonors new parade permit laws?

You are displaying something that is designed to attract attention and it needs to be listed and registered with your parade permit first. Then you have to provide a list of people in your parade and provide another list of names of the marshals for ever one-hundred people, along with proof of $1 million dollar of liability insurance.

That's you're so-called "free speech" Get it?

Hizzhonors message is to just sit down and shut the f--- up!

We may love it for the G8/NATO summits right? Right after when they start screwing us with the next union contract and pension deal just don't get any bright ideas like protesting about it as we have successfully used the crisis by not letting it go to waste.

So let's sit down and shut up...and "just do our jobs"

$65 million dollars of the taxpayers money to throw a party for 7,000 clowns.

Let's round it up to $70 million as you know these things often go over budget.

Why that's $10,000 dollars a clown for this circus. If they are in town for ten days it's $1,000 dollars a day per clown.

From another perspective the city has about 6.5 million people here right? So a ten dollar private donation from every man women and child should cover the cost of the party for the dignitaries.

If you have a family of four please deposit your $40 into the next campaign fund raising dinner envelope and remember.."He that has the most STUFF when they die wins!!1"

All while bodies stack up at the morgue, homeless shelters and mental health facilities are closed and the poor children get shot and mobbed seven to one behind our schools.

Buy hey if we run over budget we can always close down the libraries for another day of the week or set-up aldermanic photo-ops via main stream media to proclaim how selfish these people are -- how they need to take another pay cut -- them and their greedy little unions.

They are telling them that they may have to hole up inside the building because of the possibility of not being able to get out for the entire week that this summit is here. They are stocking up on food, water and general survival supplies. The managment there is simply amazed at the spin that city hall is putting out on this.

If were surprised at what a professor said about the G8, I can't imagine how others would feel about some of the questions posed today at the FOP meeting.

Who's gonna pay for me to get extra uniforms?(uniform check douchebag). what's the deal with this sound truck?(don't even know what the hell that was). Who's gonna spell me if I need a relief? Do those tire 1 guys give me a break so I don't have to stand so long? I couldn't believe my ears! My impression is that a majority of coppers that have to be at this crap are scared shitless. And these are the same people that are gonna be behind me and my teammates and are supposed to be helping us out if need be. Stay home. I wouldn't want you to have to incur any goddamn laundry expenses. These were their only concerns. Unreal! We are so screwed. People it's only 10 days out of your career and I got a feeling you wont be complaining come the following month when you get your OT check. Maybe then you can spend some of your money on cleaning your uniforms if they happen to get dirty during the protests. I gotta give our union execs for withholding what I'm sure they really wanted to say to these idiots. And to the dude that researched law to find out why he feels he doesn't have to buy the proper uniforms, that's why they give you 3 uniform checks a year. FOR UNIFORMS! They're not for vacations. Instead of figuring out ways to get out of paying for the equipment you need to get through this safely maybe you should focus more of your time and energy on how to better prepare yourself for the actual event.

The Prairie State is in dire fiscal straits, with terrible figures for pension funding, deficit spending, unemployment and foreclosures. The official response out of the capital in Springfield?

WGHP; VIDEO: Ga. Congressman Concerned Guam Might Capsize

1:13 PM EDT, April 1, 2010

During a House Armed Services Committee meeting last week, a Georgia congressman expressed concern over a plan to station more troops on Guam, saying he wondered if the additional people would cause the island to capsize.

Rep. Hank Johnson, a Democrat representing Gwinnett, Dekalb and Rockdale counties in Georgia's fourth district, was questioning Admiral Robert Willard about the stationing of 5,000 additional U.S. Marines and their families on the island, a U.S. territory in the Pacific.

After going into detail about the exact dimensions of the 212-square-mile island, Johnson says, "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

Willard replies: "We don't anticipate that."

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that, through a spokesman, Johnson has explained he was speaking metaphorically:

"I wasn't suggesting that the island of Guam would literally tip over," said Johnson. "I was using a metaphor to say that with the addition of 8,000 Marines and their dependents -- an additional 80,000 people during peak construction to the port on the tiny island with a population of 180,000-- could be a tipping point which would adversely affect the island's fragile ecosystem and over burden its already overstressed infrastructure.

"Having traveled to Guam last year, I saw firsthand how this beautiful -- but vulnerable island -- is already overburdened, and I was simply voicing my concerns that the addition of that many people could tip the delicate balance and do harm to Guam."
---


Now just imagine what would happen if Guam did capsize. It might sink and might not be found again for years. And if the governor of the island was formerly in the Italian Cruise Ship business we could have a real problem.

Imagine the headlines: GUAM: LOST AT SEA! GOVERNOR OF ISLAND REFUSES ORDER TO RETURN TO CAPSIZED ISLAND

Comment from witness: "First that damn Italian cruise ship takes a crap and rolls over, now it is damned Guam that can't be found!"

"But then again, if we could get all the citizens and US Serviceman off the island first and we only lost protestors it might not be too bad.

To the protestors: do what you have to do. As will I.

I realize you thrive on getting a reaction out of me, a family man trying to pay the bills, stuck in a situation I'd rather not be in. We both know I am not going to "join" you, even if I sympathize with your cause.

The media is salivating at the thought of catching me with a nightstick raised overhead to put on the front pages.

I believe protests are futile, selfish acts, especially when they turn violent.

Protest to your very core, but know this: I'm human too. If you start a battle with me, be prepared for Hell on earth. It won't be my home you burn down and I could not care less about the corporations you whine about. But raise a fist to me, or my friends/co-workers and expect swift and blinding Justice.

This is not a threat. It is a warning.

Anyone in a hoody or mask will have my exclusive attention. I hope for peace, but I know what you crave. It's not peace.

Behave.

Get your facts straight. Bill Ayers WAS a professor at UIC. He has retired. And the economic theory that put this country intothe dumper was "Kansian Economic Theory" (throwing money into a system to prop it up) which if followed by liberals, not the "Free market theory" that is taught at U of C. Free market is what will get us OUT of this mess.

IF I were a business owner anywhee near these protests, I would close and lock my store and board up the windows for the duration. Yes I would lose business but my employees would get a vacation (yes I would pay them) but It would be less expensive than a loss of stock and repairing the valdalism that will occur. If they attendees are upset that they can't shop or eat or whatever, let them blame Rahm.

Rham thought his "protest fine" program would pay for NATO/G8 unfunded security costs. Now that option looks unconstitutional.

Lori Healy: "Jill-of-all-Trades", exactly what are her qualifications to oversee a major security event such as G8, plus NATO, plus that belatedly-added Russian conference? She's just another Daley loyalist appointee who goes from assignment to assignment, performance be damned. She was in charge of Olympics bid --- doesn't that say enough? Naive, ill-informed, and pompous "Chicago Will Conquer" mentality.

Note that Ignatius is closing for the duration of G8/NATO, despite significant inconvenience to school operations (reschedule prom, AP tests, sports events, etc)

Note that BOMA Chicago is advising its downtown property manager members to stockpile boarding-up materials and food provisions, to expect tenants to be marooned in building during riots, and to expect significant ground-floor property damage. Expect looting and bystander injuries.

There's a low-budget feature film set in Seattle during their G8 conference that includes footage from those riots. Should be mandatory watching for all Chicago residents who find themselves downtown on a regular basis. Bystanders get injured and property damage notable.

Chicago has long operated on the "good enough" principle, run by "C+" administrators who don't bother to investigate, prepare, brief, or adequately manage city operations. Chicagoams are in for a very rude surprise.

Gents, I have to dissent a bit with some of the comments about Prof. Sanderson. He is a straight shooter, not a BS artist. He told the Daley/Ryan olympic committee that their financial projections were pure fantasy, too. Finally, Billy Ayers is associated with the Uni. of Illinois @ Chicago, not the Univ. of Chicago, though he has plenty of friends at the latter.

Bill Ayers teachs at University of Illinois at Chicago and the Economics Department at the University of Chicago is a right wing conservative freemarket department- whose professors' theories are part of the reason our country is in the hole. Maybe you should know what you're talking about before you brand a conservative a libtard.

And to the dude that researched law to find out why he feels he doesn't have to buy the proper uniforms, that's why they give you 3 uniform checks a year. FOR UNIFORMS! They're not for vacations. Instead of figuring out ways to get out of paying for the equipment you need to get through this safely maybe you should focus more of your time and energy on how to better prepare yourself for the actual event.

1/17/2012 09:00:00 PM

OK. let's see. You're in a unit and you purchased the gear so you can be elite. Or you were issued the gear as first issue a few years back. Either way, you need to check that contract. If the city got $56 million to fund this G8 and won't purchase the gear to keep officers safe, that's a problem.

Our uniform checks were given as a way to keep salaries down. It's not for us to piss away every time the mayor wants to hold something that requires extra gear. If you get your paid for gear destroyed by paint or shit, are you going to buy it again?. How about if it gets fouled up for the next event? You buy it? if you do, you're soft.

Since you are trying to get facts straight, It's "Keynesian" Economic Theory (John Maynard Keynes) not from "Kansas." And you're correct, it is/will be the ruin of this country if not stopped.

And you have it exactly backward. If our government followed the U of C free-market (Conservative) economic theories, we would not be in this problem--it is because our government shackled and involved it self in so much of the economy (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) that our economy is screwed up. Obama does NOT follow the theories for which his his former school is famous.

You go ahead and take that bag of shit to the head. Then you go ahead and try to go IOD. When Rahm's medical integrity unit is done with you, you will have lost your 26 years. Why don't you just slip and fall in the parking lot instead? It might be a safer way for you to get out of standing with your brothers and sisters.

If were surprised at what a professor said about the G8, I can't imagine how others would feel about some of the questions posed today at the FOP meeting. Let's see: who's gonna wash my uniform if it gets dirty? Who's gonna pay for me to get extra uniforms?(uniform check douchebag).


My friend, as a former Army medic and current 20th Dist Unit Rep. my concern is for you and your families health and well being. If you live with small children or older adults who aren’t in the best of health and you bring soiled clothes home, they can be infected and die by what you bring home on your clothes.

Diseases can be spread when people come in contact with human waste, both fecal material and urine.
Germs live in human waste and grow very quickly in warm, moist conditions. Human waste may also contain parasitic worms and their eggs.
Many diseases and parasites are spread by human waste. They are very common in areas of the world where sanitation is poor. Many people coming to this event will be coming from areas of the world with poor sanitation. Check out what happened in Haiti after the earthquake.
Diseases Spread by Human Waste: Cholera, Dysentery, Hepatitis, Measles, Polio and Typhoid fever. Things that live in Human Waste: Pinworms, Amoebas, Tapeworms, Hookworms, Roundworms, Giardia and Trichina worms.

Giardia is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal illness known as giardiasis. Giardia (also known as Giardia intestinalis, Giardia lamblia, or Giardia duodenalis) is found on surfaces or in soil, food, or water that has been contaminated with feces (poop) from infected humans or animals.
Giardia is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it tolerant to chlorine disinfection. While the parasite can be spread in different ways, water (drinking water and recreational water) is the most common method of transmission.
I believe that you my not be able to go home if transportation gets messed up during the riots and you will need a change of uniform. Have you purchased or have a change of turtle gear? How about the other members of your team?

Well, I'll just bet you can take that bank account along with you as you look for a new job.

You don't work at an accounting firm; you're (ostensibly) the police.

In other words, the twelve hour days and the overtime are MANDATORY, junior, not elective. Grow up. None of us WANTS this mess our mayor has brought to the city, but we're all stuck with it. Even you.

I notice that the people get smarter as you near the end of the blog. You, my friend, almost had it right. It's "Keynesian" economic theory (Named for the British economist, John Maynard Keynes) and it is the one favored by the liberals, unlike the conservative theories fronted by several Nobel prize winning economist from the U of C.
Got mine in Economics from Loyola where we studied them both. Look where it got me... a beat car in the ghetto!
