Theodore W. Schultz’s defence of *Philosophy of Economics*

Theodore W Schultz (1902-1998)

I was graced with the selfless friendship of this great American from 1983 onwards. We met last at the University of Chicago in the summer of 1992 when I flew from Washington DC to see him. He was without a doubt among the most decent, honourable and scholarly of all economists in the 20th Century.

Not only did he write this, he later deposed on my behalf as an expert witness in a US federal court.
