Allan Stockman dies
I just learned from the Cowen/Tabarrok blog (Marginal Revolution) that Allan Stockman died. I met him several times. He worked on a post-doc at UCLA while I was in grad school there. He then moved on to the University of Rochester where he spent his career. He wrote a principles of economics text, and I participated in a panel that read portions and offered comments on it. He was a first-rate economist, specializing in international finance. An obituary is here.
