The life and times of Gordon Tullock

Here is a new paper by Daniel Houser and Charles K. Rowley (pdf):

Gordon Tullock is a founding father of public choice. In an academic career that has spanned 50 years, he forged much of the research agenda of the public choice program and he founded and edited Public Choice, the key journal of public choice scholarship. Tullock, however did much more than this. This Special Issue of Public Choice honors Gordon Tullock in precisely the manner that he most values: the creation of new ideas across the vast range of his own scholarly interests.

The paper gives a better sense of Tullock the individual than the abstract alone indicates.  Hat tip goes to Andres Marroquin, who all development economists should be following on Twitter.
