Ed Prescott

We live in a more lonely world. As when a parent dies, Ed’s departure will leave an empty spot that will be forever impossible to fill in. We cannot imagine our Society without Ed’s influence. We cannot imagine Macroeconomics without Ed’s influence. We cannot even imagine what our professional lives would be without Ed’s influence.


We will now walk through a period of grief in which we will dig deep in our minds and in our hearts remembering him, reviewing his impact and thanking him for everything he has done. It will be hard at times. Maybe focusing on how lucky we were to at least partially share the macroeconomics journey with that Captain will alleviate our souls.

Rest in peace Ed.
