The only good communist…
Very sad to hear that Marxist economist Andrew Glyn, who had the dubious honour of teaching both me and Chris Dillow, has died.
As a not-very-socalist, I’d second Chris’s view that:
He never gave those of us who shared his views an easy ride, and was never less than generous to those who didn’t share his views; his conservative and liberal students held him in as high regard as I did.
…which isn’t a bad (professonal) epitaph for an academic.
