Professor Gary Becker (1930-2014)

Its really sad that Professor Gary Becker passed away. I say sad because I used to his co-hosted blog regularly for some years until recently. He was 83 year old. He was a kind of revolutionary economist in the 20th century for his works on human capital and so on. 

Hundreds of tributes have been poring around the world to remember him and his works in economics and social sciences which are sort standing truths for ever.

Prof Becker gave the 2010 IEA Hayek Memorial Lecture.

Here are some really interesting tributes and reflections on the Prof Becker's contributions in economics and humanity at large:
