A scholar, a gentleman, and a truly innovative thinker. he will be missed.
Thanks for the updates.
Thanks for putting up that Heckman piece. I studied Labor Econ under one of his students. I met Zvi Griliches when he was working on the Boskin report for the CPI. Needless to say he looked quite a bit different than in this student days version.
