Elinor Ostrom Has Passed On

Elinor Ostrom died of cancer on Tuesday. She was a great economist and, from what I understand, a great person as well. I will never forget her being interviewed by NPR over the phone and the interview getting interrupted half-way through because her husband, also a great economist, wanted to show her a deer that had wandered into their frontyard. Classic. She will be missed.
