Stephen Resnick

On January 2nd, a brilliant economist, Stephen Resnick, one of the founding members and a cornerstone of the heterodox Economics Department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, died. Professor Resnick touched the lives of hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students over his career, including myself; even though I never met him, when I used to teach economics I often referred to a book that he co-authored with his long-time collaborator Richard Wolff, Economics: Neoclassical versus Marxian. An early obituary, written by one of his former students from Umass, can be found at:
