Steve Horwitz passed away on June 27, 2021, due to complications from cancer. He was a dear friend and co-author, and former President of the Society for the Development of Austrian Economics. He also served as an Associate Editor of the RAE since 1998 and was an outstanding contributor to the journal as an author, referee, and editor.
Among Steve’s many contributions, he specialized in macroeconomics. The RAE recently published a symposium on his book on macroeconomics, Microfoundations and Macroeconomics, consisting of younger scholars reflecting on the impact of Horwitz’s work and its future directions. In honor of Steve, the issue of the RAE containing this symposium will be open access and free of charge.
