I am saddened to hear that Walter Williams has passed away.
He was an intellectual giant.
I still remember the first time I found his popular column critiquing socialism. Part 2 is here. It was clear thinking on a familiar topic that I had not considered.
Don’t miss his autobiography: Up From The Projects
(He was even kind enough to do my shortest interview.)
Williams was an advocate of freedom.
Above all, he loved communicating that freedom, along with basic economics, to the public.
He was (is) a hero of mine.
And we are worse off without him.
