Sixth Annual Noble Prize In Jurisprudence (October 18, 2021) 

Posted in Law, Noble Prize in Jurisprudence on October 18, 2021 by e-commentary.org

K          “A prize dedicated to acknowledging and celebrating the work of someone who or some organization that really knows something about jurisprudence and the impact of courts, judges, lawyers and police on the lives and livelihood of ordinary citizens.  Someone who lives the conviction that men and women should establish and respect some norms and standards that are promulgated clearly to all and enforced equally in favor of and against all.”

J          “Someone who advances the Rule of Law and stuff like that.  I like it.”

K          “The recipient of the sixth annual Noble Prize In Jurisprudence . . . is the unsung and uncelebrated solo practitioner laboring often at little to no compensation for ordinary Americans who do not appreciate or acknowledge the sacrifice and contribution in a legal system that vacillates between corruption and ineptitude.”

J          “Will they split the award in thirds?”

Sixth Annual Noble Prize In Eco-nomics (October 11, 2021)

K          “An award acknowledging and celebrating the work of someone on the planet who really knows something about eco-nomics.  Eco-nomics is about making and sharing; e-con-omics is about taking and stealing.”

J          “The Noble Prize in Eco-nomics is a delightful and playful replacement for the discredited and misnamed ‘Nobel’ Prize in Voodoo E-con-omics.  You get what you reward.  You need to reward what you want to get.  Who gets it this year?”

K          “The recipient of the sixth annual Noble Prize In Eco-nomics is . . . John Williams who has produced Shadowstats for years.  His site observes: “‘John Williams’ Shadow Government Statistics’ is an electronic newsletter service that exposes and analyzes flaws in current U.S. government economic data and reporting, as well as in certain private-sector numbers, and provides an assessment of underlying economic and financial conditions, net of financial-market and political hype.”  He has contributed immensely and with little credit providing accurate statistics using the government’s original formulas.”

J          “They don’t need to be concerned about public opinion.  They don’t mind to be because they are above the law.”
