Professor Larry Sechrest, author of Free Banking and professor of economics at Sul Ross University, died this morning at the age of 62. He may be best known for his 2004 essay about the trouble with students and the furor it caused. Sechrest also gave the fabulous 2008 Mises Memorial Lecture The Anti-Capitalists: Barbarians at the Gate, which you can also watch on YouTube.
Jeff Tucker has more in the obituary he wrote. Rest in peace, Professor Sechrest.
