A Tragedy

Benjamin Reo Darrington, winner of the Mises Institute’s Douglas French Prize for the most learned, died over a year ago at age 26. I have only learned of this less than an hour ago. I feel sick and am almost about to cry. I never knew the man, but his only published work of note, Government Created Economies of Scale and Capital Specificity, published in pamphlet form here, has been the single most important work on political economy I have ever read. I first read it in mid-2009, over a year before his death. His only other articles I can find through Google are to be found here and here. Neither is worth reading. The Facebook page commemorating his death is here.
