RIP: Armen Alchian, 1914-2013
The great property-rights economist Armen Alchian has died at the age of 98. Alchian was among Lin Ostrom's economics professors at UCLA in the 1960s, and she always talked about him with great affection. I never was fortunate enough to meet the man. You can read a nice appreciation of his work here.
