Robert Fogel, Nobel Laureate, RIP

Robert Fogel has died.  I have read many books on economics, but few were as affecting, thought-provoking and challenging as Time on the Cross. Fogel was a great mind, and thankfully was recognized for it during his lifetime.  God speed.

UPDATE:  Not one of the many economics blogs that I read regularly has seen fit to mention, let alone laud, Fogel.  Such is the climate of anti-intellectualism that pervades the modern politically correct academic world that the author of Time on the Cross is verboten.
