Allow me for a word of mourning. I received an email from Pakistan's economist, Khalil Ahmad. It was a sad news. Aslam Effendi, a great economist from Pakistan passed away after a "protracted illness". I don't know much about Dr. Effendi, but the fact that Henry Hazlitt wrote a foreword to his book, "Hard Facts of History" says it all.
A friend from the Phillipines, Nonoy Oplas offered another obituary, saying that "I am sure Mr. Effendi died a happy man because there are now plenty of [us] who continue what he has started..."
