It is with great sadness that I inform the community of heterodox economists that Fred Lee passed away on October 23 after a brave battle against lung cancer. Given his deterioration over the last week, this was something of a welcome relief. The tentative date for his memorial service is November 8, but an announcement as to the details will be forthcoming.
Fred Lee will be remembered for his tireless effort to develop heterodox economic theories, to build institutions and communities, and to liberate students from the illusions created by defunct economists.
You can watch his last presentation at the Post Keynesian Conference on September 27, 2014, here:
You can watch his last lecture at the UMKC on April 24, 2014, here.
Should you have a story you want to share with others, please send an email to Tae-Hee Jo, firstname.lastname@example.org or “leave a reply.”
May he rest in peace.
