RIP Jack Calfee



Sadly, economist Jack Calfee passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack Wednesday night. He had written for Point of Law about the Vioxx litigation, and we frequently cited him about drug and vaccine regulation and litigation. Calfee also did important work on non-economic damages in the 1980s and 1990s. He had moderated panels for me and vice versa when I was at AEI; he was also a client. Jack will be missed, both as a scholar and as a friend. I'm sorry that I will miss his memorial service because of a preexisting commitment in California. Other memories: Sam Kazman; Tevi Troy; John Graham; Galen Institute.
