Sign of the times

Business Week has an article on Ronald Coase, an eminent economist, and his latest project, an attempt to get economists down-to-earth again.

In typical journalistic style, BusinessWeek gives his age thus:
Coase, 101, began working with Wang in the 1990s at the University of Chicago.
Made me look twice or three times, I'll tell you.

Seems he did his seminal work seventy-five years ago.

This article is worth reading for other reasons than the subject's age.
