It is with much regret that we heard of the passing away of Mike Intriligator last week. Mike has served on the Institute for Economics and Peace’s Research Committee since 2009. I will always remember is friendly and inclusive manner and I always looked forward to seeing him.
It’s hard to capture in words his life’s accomplishments, only to say that reading his academic track record in humbling. I first met him through the Economists for Peace and Security which is just one of the organisations where he has served on the Research Committee, he certainly dedicated a lot of his free time to help to build a better and more sustainable world, a quality I really admired in him.
The LA Times wrote an excellent obituary to him and has done much better justice to his life work than I could; please follow the link to read a man who truly impressed me. He will be missed by many.
