Meet Willem Buiter's Sexy, Demented Stalker

Tyler Durden's picture

And now for something completely different.

Citi's Willem Buiter is best known for his exhaustive, often times fatalistic outlook on Europe (he will ultimately be right about the Grexit, and Spexit, and ultimately Dexit, the only problem is so will Meredith Whitney about the state of the US municipals - eventually). It appears there may have been a reason for his dour outlook on life: a sexy stalker as it turns out. A sexy, but very demented stalker.

Meet Heleen Mees. Helen, 44, a one-time NYU professor from the Netherlands, had once been in a relationship with the fellow Dutchman and current Citi economist (unclear how long said relationship with the married with children Buiter took place).

The relationship turned sour, however, and the couple split, at which point Mees proceeded to bombard Buiter with over 1,000 emails, between July 1, 2011 and Monday, which contained everything from photos of herself masturbating and images of other naked women, to threats, while at least one was a hyper-sexual come-on. “What can I do to make it right? Shall I lick your balls?”

Mees allegedly wrote in one email. “Shall we adopt a child?” she wrote in another.

In a third she said: “Hope your plane falls out of the sky.” Well, if Buiter was harboring Snowden in his carry on, this just may have happened.

NY Daily News has more:

 The pair were once lovers — but at some point, the romance apparently soured and Mees unleashed her wrath on her fellow Dutchman. A noted researcher and columnist who speaks five languages, Mees barraged Buiter with an avalanche of emails between July 1, 2011, and Monday.


In addition to sending him X-rated images of herself, she sent him a photo of dead birds on May 3.


Mees also targeted Buiter’s economist wife, Anne, and children, sending them unwanted messages as well, court papers say. Buiter demanded she stop, and still the loony stalker kept harassing him.


Even after Buiter sent Mees a cease-and-desist letter Feb. 27, she allegedly wouldn’t stop, sending the object of her twisted desire several hundred more emails. “Defendant’s actions have caused him severe annoyance and alarm, and fear for his physical safety of his wife and children,” the criminal complaint says.


Mees — who once founded a female-empowerment organization called Women on Top — was arrested at 11:45 p.m. Monday.


She was arraigned Tuesday on stalking, harassment and aggravated harassment charges. She was ordered held on $5,000 bail.


Mees’ Legal Aid lawyer, Vaneshka Hyacinthe, said her client “had a longstanding relationship” with Buiter and “the emails go in both directions.”


Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaum issued Mees an order of protection and demanded she stay away from Buiter and his family.


“Do not call them, do not go to their home, school, businesses, place of employment . . . no email, no text messages, instant messages, no phone calls, letters, fax or voice messages,” the judge said.


A doorman at her building in DUMBO, Brooklyn, described her as a generous tipper and frequent traveler who is always seen with her bike and laptop.

So now we know about Buiter's secret life. Now: our kingdom for a few hints from the NSA about the "racy" contents the daily email back and forth between Jan Hatzius and Bill Dudley...

Why is the word sexy in there?

BigJim's picture

What? You don't find women who send you photos of dead birds sexy?

Actually.. if the dead bird was a chicken... and it had been very nicely cooked, and arranged artistically on a plate with a variety of other comestibles... and there was a glass of champagne... I suppose it could be sexy.

It seems bankers are also bankers in their personal lives.

Dead birds? Oh, dear, I blacked out after I read about getting a video of her masturbating....

Dear Ms. Mees,

Take him down and out, be a national heroine.

She is smoking hot.  I gotta say I have a soft spot for intellectual women who can be naughty.  She speaks five languages, and did I say she was naughty?

Being a bit of fruit cake and pissing on the family was EXTREMELY uncool though.

Just don't.

Heed Buckaroo Banzai's advice.

Trust us.

You're right if course, but unfortunately, the very best screws are almost always bat-shit crazy.

Pretty tough to not pull the trigger once in a while.

I can attest to that.  And I survived.  (Whew!)

True cuz, how true. Believe the man, he is right. The 6 second (compared to a womans 20 second) orgasm is SO totally not worth it!!


Why didnt she boil a rabbit?

That's a very limiting precept.

Willem It Was Really Nothing....

Lurid yes, but the relevance is that the NSA has some type of this background info on most people in power. We know they collected it, many of us believe they looked at it and are using it to move decisions toward what they want. It would explain why so many political and regulatory bodies have made such epic bad decisions to uphold the status quo.

SWCroaker's picture

The beauty of having everyone know about the system is that everyone's default reaction to claimed evidence will be to believe it.  If there isn't damning evidence already there, give them a day, and they'll put some in quick and tidy: you may have never been within a mile of an actual goat, but trust me, we have pictures.   ;)

If allowed to exist, that system (just the mere threat of it) is the ultimate control mechanism for any and all who are vulnerable to public opinion.

Steaming_Wookie_Doo's picture

I see the NSA as a primary source of this sort of lurid info--at least for blackmail or "Cooperation". Likely the ones collecting the data are sexual deviants as well, so they're only "following their passion" and getting paid big spend to boot. It's the american dream.

I do wonder what Mr Buiter was working on that had to be so fantastically he's a dead agent, no one will ever take him seriously again.

European Politicians Are Realizing – Blackmail is the Game

July 1, 2013 by Martin Armstrong

A revelation is dawning that the excuse of the NSA looking for terrorists but taking absolutely everything, is at last causing a light to go off. European politicians realize that they are targets and the name of the game is to blackmail anyone that the NSA simply does not like.

. . .

Back in November 2012, we published that blackmail was taking place politically. On the Hill, I personally made inquiries as to the shadow common force that seemed to be moving the legislation. There was no individual responsible for all the Draconian legislation appearing.

However, connecting the dots, each piece was shaping up to be a common agenda. When I asked that question on the Hill behind closed doors, I was told that the politicians all had a common issue – they could be blackmailed. I wrote at that time:

Thanks to Lindsey Graham you have no right to a lawyer or to a trial. Why did he champion that? The rumor was he is an alleged closet homosexual and he would be exposed if he did not eliminate the right to lawyers and a public trial. What was done to Raleigh can be done to anyone now.

Then there is Charles B. Rangel who gets caught not remembering to pay his taxes and strangely then introduces tax bills to prosecute more people for doing what he did. Curious coincidence?“

The tide is turning, Matrix.

HERE is a little help to encourage you.


i sent this out to the NSA and the US OFFICIAL websites directly, along with the 'keylogging keywords', less than 12 hours ago.


On a lighter note, this woman COULD be desirable, if she worked off her cellulite-laden arms and laid off of the SSRI's.

I don't find stretched arm skin sexy.

ParkAveFlasher's picture

I don't find a freckly non-cleavage chest void sexy.  Maybe it's a Dutch thing?

NidStyles's picture

Couldn't tell you. I do not deal with Euro people. My ancestors left Europe for a reason.

CPL's picture

She's got that stark Dragon lady thing going on doesn't she?  I envision her with an entourage of vaguely European ambiguously gay sycophants wearing turtle necks all in black.  She radiates cold, creepy and broken.  

Not sure how he popped wood.  Any normal man get his dick any where near someone that cold, it would crawl up inside.  Then again, beauty is only a light switch away.

knukles's picture

That's just cruel

Really funny but cruel

AT my age I settle for respiration.

Stoploss's picture

She's just a real smart crazy bitch that loves to fuck.  There aint a damned thing wrong with that.

Her problem is, she needs a real man, that can handle a crazy smart bitch that loves to fuck.


You find those in the South sweetheart...

NidStyles's picture

That doesn't make her sexy, that makes her a heathen and unreliable.


I am from the South, and despite most southerners; I don't have this obsessive ego that says I am better than everyone else, that I do find quite pathetic.

Hell yes !  Crazy ass bitches are the best !!

I guess I'll have to say it again.
