Sir Alan Walters (1926-2009)

We are sad to note the recent passing in January of Sir Alan Walters (1926-2009). Sir Alan was an academic economist who believed that strict monetary targets should be set by the state in order to curb inflation. He rose to prominence when he left Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to join Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as her economic adviser in 1981. He was interviewed by John Blundell of the Institute for Economic Affairs in one of Liberty Fund's Intellectual Portrait Series in 2002. A DVD of this interview can be purchased, the audio track is available online in various formats, or one can listen online here:
