The Citigroup Chief Economist And The Crazy Stalker Economist

The Citigroup Chief Economist And The Crazy Stalker Economist

The title almost reads like the Simon Winchester book The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary.

This might be a touch crazier, even for current or past NYU lecturers. Former and past NYU professors over the last ten years, in no particular order nor a need to name each of them, have: sued James Franco, allegedly taken up-skirt photos of colleagues and students, shamed a PhD candidate for obesity, and  roamed the streets of New York indiscriminately yelling at dogs. I should also mention that when I use alleged in regards to Heleen Mees, I was being quite liberal with alleged.

Both economists in question are Dutch-borne, a group of people I’ve found to be quite boring in their homeland but a sexually interesting lot when on vacation. Perhaps the famous “red light” district of Amsterdam is contagious if you don’t put a condom over your head.

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Lovesick Economist

While some of those emails could almost be viewed as pleasant, a few were apparently not so nice including one that read, “Hope your plane falls out of the sky.” This was followed by a series of emails that included photos of dead birds. Apparently, Ms. Mees thought that her former lover who spurned her flies in planes drawn by Disney animators in The Rescuers.

On February 27, Mr. Buiter sent Mees a cease-and-desist letter, but that did nothing to deter the love-crazy professor, who proceeded to fire off several hundred more emails to him, according to court documents.

While studying economics, Brendan found himself comfortably falling down the rabbit hole of restaurant work, ultimately opening a consulting business and working as a private wine buyer. On a whim, he moved to China, and in his first week following a triumphant pub quiz victory, he found himself bleeding on the floor based on his arrogance. The same man who put him there offered him a job lecturing for the University of Wales in various sister universities throughout the Middle Kingdom. While primarily lecturing in descriptive and comparative statistics, Brendan simultaneously earned an Msc in Banking and International Finance from the University of Wales-Bangor. He's presently doing something he hates, respecting French people. Well, two, his wife and her mother in the lovely town of Antigua, Guatemala. <i>To contact Brendan or give him an exclusive, please contact him at [email protected]</i>
