Instead of a eulogy, I've done something different.

After several years(!) of delay on the publisher's end, my complete class notes of Don Lavoie's 1985 Comparative Economic Systems graduate course will be published in Research in the History and Methodology of Economic Thought -- I believe in the early winter.

The notes include my [bracketed comments] where appropriate and further bibliographical references to Lavoie's in-class lectures.

Perhaps Virdge can somehow get this, too, up at the Lavoie site.

Thanks, Steve. I have many fond memories of Don. He was the model of a good scholar, good libertarian, and a good person.

I have Ronn Neff's draft of the concluding chapter of National Economic Planning: What is Left? --- Don's book was an amazing work in economics, political economy, and social theory.

When I re-read National Economic Planning: What is Left? I am inspired anew. As I mentioned at the SDAE dinner I cannot believe it has been 7 years since Don passed away. This was a personal tragedy to his family and to us his friends and students, but there also isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about the tragic reality that generations of students at GMU (both undergraduate and graduate) will not get to meet and learn from Don, and young and older scholars will not have the opportunity to learn from his writings. This is a professional tragedy. Those of us who were his students can deal with the first tragedy in our own way by honoring him to minimize the second tragedy through having Don's example as a teacher inspire us, and his example as a scholar to guide us.
