Frederic S. Lee and His Fight for the Future of Heterodox Economics

Tae-Hee Jo

Abstract


Frederic S. Lee (1949-2014) was a dedicated captain of the heterodox economics movement over the past thirty years. In the course of his unfaltering fight for the future of heterodox economics, Lee contributed to both the development of heterodox microeconomic theory and the establishment of a global community of heterodox economists. This short tribute delineates Lee’s unique and important contribution that should be remembered and renewed in order to reproduce heterodox economics.
