Yesterday was James Buchanan's 90th birthday. Professor Buchanan was awarded the Nobel Price in 1986 for his pioneer work in public choice theory. He came to George Mason University from Virginia Tech in 1983. (A similar journey I eventually made myself -- a couple decades later.) I had the privilege of taking a seminar with Buchanan two-and-a-half years ago and he was still as sharp as ever.
Here is a collection of Buchanan's work and a picture of me with him.
Below is a video tribute to Buchanan:
Happy birthday, Professor Buchanan!
