karl_gunnar_perssonLike a bolt out of the blue, sad, sad, news reached us today that my dear old teacher, colleague, and neighbour — Karl Gunnar Persson — has died of a heart attack while on a bicycling tour in Sinea, Italy.

Among his foremost works are An Economic History of Europe, Knowledge, Institutions and Growth, 600 to the Present (Cambridge University Press 2014), Grain markets in Europe 1500–1900, Integration and Deregulation (Cambridge University Press 1999) and Pre-Industrial Economic Growth, Social Organization and Technological Progress in Europe (Basil Blackwell 1988).

Another great Swedish economic historian has passed away.

He is held in great esteem and we all truly miss this passionate researcher.

Rest in peace my friend.

Den som inte hoppas skall inte förtvivla. Den skall inte tvivla som ingenting tror.
Men den som söker mål och den som söker mening ger draken dess etter och riddaren hans svärd.

Gunnar Ekelöf
