In Memory of Ed Robb
All of us at the Show-Me Institute were shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Dr. Ed Robb. Dr. Robb was a wonderful economist who took his ideals and beliefs into the marketplace of American politics. As a member of the University of Missouri Department of Economics, he directed a fiscal policy research center at MU. He also was a great teacher who taught courses on public finance economics to generations of MU students. He served on our Board of Scholars during the short period between his service as a Missouri state representative and his successful campaign for Boone County Commissioner. (See page 4 for a description of his participation in one of our Columbia lectures.) More important, however, was his unofficial involvement with the Show-Me Institute as a friend and economist. I know that Dr. Joe Haslag, Dr. Michael Podgursky, and others at the institute, will miss him dearly, and Boone County has lost a community public servant.
Ed Robb, Rest In Peace.
