Herman Daly

Herman Daly, 1938-2022, was (and is posthumously) the unquestioned champion of steady-state economics.  Throughout his career, Daly swam courageously upstream in the river of political economy. Not content to bequeath his brilliance solely to the academic realm, he spent seven years as a senior economist at the World Bank for policy reform in the real world.  He also wrote books popular with concerned, serious citizens around the world, including For the Common Good (with John Cobb) and Beyond Growth.
