In Memoriam: Paul Samuelson
Paul Samuelson, perhaps the single most influential economist of the 20th century (with all due respect to John Maynard Keynes), passed away today at the age of 94. No one was more responsible for the formalization of economic methods, which revolutionized the way economics was, and is, taught (for better and for worse). The New York Times has the story here.
