The Pamuk brothers

Kurt Schuler writes to me:

If you are not already aware of it (and I didn’t see it mentioned in a quick search of Marginal Revolution), it may interest you that Orhun Pamuk has an older brother, Sevket, an economist who shuttles between LSE and Bogaziçi (Bosphorus) University in Istanbul. Sevket is the coauthor of A History of Middle East Economies in the Twentieth Century and author of A Monetary History of the Ottoman Empire, among other works in English and Turkish…A Monetary History of the Ottoman Empire is a really good book for those interested in monetary history, by the way, because it covers a long period, a big geographical area, and a body of writing in languages that hardly any Anglophone economists read, all in a brisk 300 pages.
