Although he’s been gone a couple years, I just found out my favorite college professor– a man who inspired my interest and love of economics– passed away. He was one of the last remaining free-market economists left in state-funded, socialist academia. Very, very sad day for me. He was one of my heroes.
I had many classes with him. My final class was “Advanced Monetary Theory” and because it was part of my graduation agreement, the course had to be offered despite my being the only enrollee. I would sit in the front row and he would lecture me and 150 empty desks about Keynesians and Monetarists. I loved every minute of it. Never missed a session.
