It's been over a week since we've featured a Harvard professor on this blog

Harvard economist Kenneth Rogoff is a familiar name to Wall Street Journal readers, and he's also a grandmaster.  I played him in a 1977 simultaneous exhibition at MIT: he scored 24 wins and 6 draws against very tough opposition.  (I played the then-obscure gambit line 3...Nxe4?! in the Petroff, based on analysis from a recent Shakmatnaya Biuletyn; he refuted it without thinking.)

Will AI stimulate the economy in the coming decade?  (H/T to David Quinn on the USCF forums.)
