In memoriam: Kenneth J. Arrow

Kenneth J. Arrow

Like many others, we were incredibly saddened to learn of the recent passing of Kenneth J. Arrow. Arrow’s work has so deeply shaped the course of economics for the past sixty years that, in a sense, every modern economist is his student. His ideas, style of research, and breadth of vision have been a model for generations of the boldest and most creative economists. Columbia University Press has been honored to publish the Kenneth J. Arrow Lecture Series, which highlights economists whose work builds on Arrow’s scholarship as well as his innovative spirit.
