How’s this for a life:
- Have the most cited law review article of all time
- Have a basic theorem named after you, pretty much inventing the field of “law and economics”
- Win a Nobel Prize–the first law school faculty member anywhere to do so
- Live to 102, and be productive, by all reports, up until close to the end
RIP to Ronald Coase.
Note that he also taught at UB for a bit and they gave him an honorary degree a few years ago. I will gladly ride his coattails as one of a fairly small group that have both UofC and UB ties.
