"William A. Niskanen, former acting head of President Reagan's Council of Economic Advisers and the longtime chairman of the Cato Institute, passed away last Wednesday at the age of 78. In its obituary on Saturday, the New York Times summed Niskanen up as a 'blunt libertarian economist,' and he was all three. But he was also vastly more interesting and admirable than that dismissive description can convey." (11/01/11)
