Biography for Nobel Prize
It’s that time of year before the February 1st deadline (midnight Norway time is 5pm Chicago time) for nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. Here are 19 press releases that tell the biographical tale of the long evolution of the stunningly precise Peace Economics theory. The interdisciplinary breadth of my background was all necessary to create this theory. Any missing components of my Nine Areas of Mastery and this development would not have been possible. Art and Religion add flavor to the Nine but are not crucial. That also makes it nearly impossible to find a peer group to judge my work adequately. I turn to the Norwegian Nobel Committee for judgment of extraordinary work. To nominate: http://www.nobelprize.org/nomination/peace/.
MATH was my first great North Star to follow and lead to all the rest. Precision and imagination were crucial to using this powerful tool. I developed three mathematical methodologies before I was taught them in the schools, so I learned how to take discovery to the next logical step.
WARGAMING I loved board games as a child and war games had enough challenge and realism to meet my needs. Gary Gygax, the inventor of “Dungeons and Dragons” with a biography entitled “Empire of Imagination” became a mentor of imagination to follow and gave me the background to understand the strategic military side of military spending.
SCIENCE Physics provided a parallel universe with accurate pursuit of the scientific method.
ENGINEERING gave me the excellence to apply Math and Physics in the pursuit of working mechanisms.
ACCOUNTING gave me a system to evaluate and organize numbers and the determination to come to an honest result when all else fails.
BUSINESS taught me many tools to organize people to achieve a specific practical purpose.
POLITICS gave me a breadth of vision in the social sciences and the world of people to fill in the holes left over from deep pursuit of the more narrow areas cited above.
PEACE ECONOMICS took six months to produce the long term United States economic model and the first book that brought it all together.
NATURAL GLOBAL WARMING took me three years to comprehend the linkages of the three 54 year cycles of temperature, economics, and wars. Then another twenty years to find that the 55 year moving average produced three straight lines in the 160 year global temperature record.
The following nineteen topics represent the biographical section of my press releases, detailing all the above. Complete copies of each release are in the link provided here and at the end. https://www.academia.edu/31102462/BIOGRAPHY_for_Nobel_Peace_Prize_2013-2017_23_p

This took a second try twenty years later to finally get my doctorate. Finally my work would be taken seriously.
