In memoriam: Richard Stroup

Eleanor Hammond
January 13, 2022

Late last year, the world of free market economics lost one of its champions with the death of Richard Stroup, co-author of “Common Sense Economics: What Everyone Should Know About Wealth and Prosperity”. An early champion of free market environmentalism, Richard was co-founder of the Property and Environment Research Center (PERC). He was also Emeritus Professor of Economics at North Carolina State University and Montana State University, a research fellow at the Independent Institute, adjunct scholar of the Cato Institute, and a member of the Mont Pèlerin Society.

We are deeply grateful to Richard and to all of the “Common Sense Economics” authorial team for their generosity in allowing us to bring the book to new audiences across Eastern Europe and the countries of the former Soviet Union. The team's continued support is an inspiration to us all.
