This from The Economist.
Here is an article in the WSJ on Deirdre McCloskey. I had the honour and pleasure to meet Deirdre some 18 months ago at a conference on behavioral economics in San Diego. She was absolutely delightful. Everything you wanted to know about Deirdre but were afraid to ask . . . can be found here.
Here is the very excellent obituarist Jane O’Grady on the late Peter Goldie whom I met very briefly in a pub near UCL. I met Jane some eight years ago at a conference in, I think, Tunbridge Wells. She was a fascinating person to talk to and told me about the process of obituary writing, much of which I found amusing.
