I met Professor Prasch in Chicago a few years back. As I am just starting my career, he reminded me that we are not just "heterodox" economists, but "economists" and the importance of our research and public outreach should not be understated. All it took was meeting him once to feel incredible sadness by his loss.

This is very unexpected and very sad news indeed. Bob was a nice person and a good scholar.

I'm very sorry to inform the AFEE community that Bob Prasch died this past weekend. I'm waiting for information from the chair of the Middlebury department and will pass this on when I have it.
