Ronald Coase, 1910-2013

Posted By Don Boudreaux On September 2, 2013 @ 8:19 pm In Economics | Comments Disabled

One of history’s greatest economists – certainly a top ten, and arguably a top five, economist of all time – died today.  Ronald H. Coase was less than four months shy of his 103rd birthday [1].  He wrote and published one of his classic papers (“The Nature of the Firm,” 1937) before my late mother was born.  More on Coase [2] later.  Suffice it now to say that my ranking of Coase as one of the greatest economists of all time [3], as an elite among the elite, is not hyperbole.

Here’s Russ’s May 2012 EconTalk podcast with Coase [4].
