Paul Samuelson - RIP

Like an editor deciding on the "lead story" of the day, I was in a dilemma about what to blog - Accenture & Tiger Woods split or Paul's obituary. The answer was simple in the end because its Paul. The man, who probably wrote the best economics textbook ever, continues to inspire millions of students worldwide that it is worth pursuing a career in dismal science.

I first read his textbook a few years ago though by then it was already a 50+ year old classic. Though it was 56 year old, it was still quite contemporary & relevant.

The NYT has a wonderfully written obituary on the great man. Please read it.
