Remembering Gary Becker

There is a lot to say about the passing of Chicago School economist Gary Becker, I think his insight that criminals are rational actors was his most important contribution, but nothing sums it up as succinctly as left-wing economist Justin Wolfers declaring Becker was his intellectual hero.

There is no good time to lose a great mind like his, but I'm thankful the world got to enjoy a glorious 83 years of Gary Becker.
