Albert Hirschman (1915-2012)

Whilst reading the fantastic Crooked Timber blog (check it out people), I came across the sad news that Albert Hirschman had died.

He was an economist in my "must read more about them later" box and his passing has been the unfortunate reminder to investigate more closely his work, particularly that on unbalanced growth strategy.
