Henry Manne (1928-2015)

I just, within the past fifteen minutes, learned this awful news: Henry Manne has died.  Here’s David Henderson’s remembrance.

I’ll write more later.

Henry was one of the greats – one who, although ‘sung,’ was grossly unsung relative to the depth and breadth of his insights.  The fields of law and economics, corporate law, and the economics of education owe more to Henry than most practitioners of these disciplines realize.  And George Mason University owes Henry a special debt: becoming Dean of the law school in 1986, Henry transformed that school from a non-entity into the superb institution that it is today.

Henry: You were a great and pioneering scholar and institution builder.  You will be missed; your legacy will live and thrive.
