The RAND Gang

RAND history

These are excerpts from the official history on the RAND website. "The story of RAND's diversification beyond military research into social welfare research during the 1960s illustrates the little-known linkages between defense and domestic policymaking in cold war America. RAND was formed at the conclusion of World War II as a means by which America's finest intellectual talent could be harnessed to national security research and policymaking in peacetime. Under a cloak of secrecy, the corporation hosted remarkable advances in such diverse fields as computer and software design, applied mathematics, space systems, and, especially, social sciences methodologies such as systems analysis. Yet, on July 14, 1966, RAND's board of trustees decided to terminate the exclusive focus on military research and diversify into social welfare research. RAND quickly secured support from a wide range of public and private institutions, and by 1972 its research and methods had become central to many new social welfare initiatives. This meant that, ironically, the sophisticated methodologies developed at RAND to contemplate nuclear war became some of the fundamental weapons against social injustice."

Well, we would say that, inasmuch as RAND represented ONLY the interests and agenda of a particularly fascist sect of the ruling elite, RAND became one of their primary weapons for perpetrating social injustice.

The Manning study was evidently intended as a backup plan to shore up the anti-smokers' claim that smoking is an economic burden to society, in case the OTA's flagrant disregard of nonsmokers' old age costs and other financial deceits became too well-known. (Thanks to their media accomplices, this hasn't happend.) Manning introduced the subterfuge of "discounting" nonsmokers' old age costs to reduce them, while disregarding the present savings due to past smoking. Before the results were fudged by discounting, the study found that smoking created net savings of 91 cents per pack. This was inflated to a net external "cost" of 26 cents per pack after discounting nonsmokers' costs. (WG Manning, EB Keeler, JP Newhouse, EM Sloss, J Wasserman. The taxes of sin. Do smokers and drinkers pay their way? JAMA 1989 Mar 17;261(11):1604-1609.) Economist Joseph P. Newhouse spent the first twenty years of his career at RAND, 1968-1988, where he designed and directed the the RAND Health Insurance Experiment, which received $82 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Carla A. Hills

Carla Hills was a RAND trustee from 1983 to 1987. Then, as the US Trade Representative from 1989 to 1993, she was embroiled in the controversy over the 1988 Omnibus Trade and Competiveness Act. The policy was designed to eliminate trade barriers to US corporations, who waited safely in the wings as the anti-smokers gibbered, slobbered and raved about US tobacco exports.
