I just learned that my great emeritus colleague Gordon Tullock died yesterday in Des Moines; he would have turned 93 in February.
I'm preparing to teach a marathon class this evening, so I've no time now to write more, but Gordon was one of a kind. His was one of the most creative, original, pioneering, fruitful, and insightful minds of the last 100 years. He deserved the Nobel Prize, but never got it. I count myself privileged beyond measure to have known him and to have been his colleague.
Reason note: Tullock explains his opposition to voting below.
