An email to some ES members on Money as gold versus money as waterDate: Thu, 11 Apr 2013

Subject: To some other members of the Econometric Society: On an important new research issue
Dear other members of the Econometric Society,
The ES website allows us to check who have been working in Holland. I found your names there. Perhaps you allow me to contact you as a fellow member and bring up the following subject. I have contacted some people in Dutch, but I checked up your cv's and think that English will be more suitable for you. It has been quite interesting to see what you have been working on.
I have launched a new economic theory, and as you know, a theory must be operationalised and tested. Perhaps you want to look in to this.
Robert Mundell's theory of an Optimal Currency Area is that a monetary union requires a political union. With the eurozone's failed architecture, we see a huge economic crisis in Europe. Politicians use this crisis to enforce more political union, but that causes national stresses.
The new theory that I propose is: when every nation adopts a national Economic Supreme Court, then we can have adequate control over the national budgets without the need for political union.
The definition of an Economic
Supreme Court is in my book DRGTPE p279:
The new theory is summarized
here for Jeroen Dijsselbloem:
and the longer exposition
is at MPRA:
Since many of you come from
all over Europe, allow me to provide the following additional explanation
in a nutshell. My analysis derives from the period of the fall of the Berlin
Wall in 1989 (and indeed, the euro was created in that new period):
I am an econometrician (Groningen 1982) and teacher of mathematics (Leiden 2008). I worked at the Dutch Central Planning Bureau in 1982-1991. The fall of the Berlin Wall caused me to present a new analysis on unemployment, see that paper above. However, the directorate of the CPB blocked my paper from discussion and publication. This is censorship of science. I was dismissed in 1991 with lies.
The situation is a bit comparable of that of Bernard Connolly, who worked at the EU Commission, and was dismissed for his critique on the euro:
Connolly was a civil servant, but my position at CPB was that of an economic scientist, whence in my case there is truly a censorship of science.
Since it has been impossible to resolve the censorship of science in Holland since 1990, I advise since 2004 to a boycott of Holland till the issue is resolved. Since 2005 I also advise to dismiss all Dutch professors of economics, for lack of understanding integrity of science. It is not unlikely that you have done a Ph. D. under the guidence of a professor who actually should have been dismissed for allowing the CPB directorate to abuse its powers. I consider it important to contact Econometric Society members with experience in Holland, since you may better understand how Dutch people are, with events like Fortuyn, Van Gogh, Wilders and the like, and how Dutch professors can be silent about censorship of science at CPB.
Because of the censorship, my work will not be found in the refereed journals. But you can read my books and papers on the website, and check that the economic crisis confirms my analysis (see DRGTPE). I hope that you see that the issue is important and consider studying it.
