The Department of Economics at UMKC lost a member of its family last night. Fred Lee, prolific scholar, humanist, and devoted husband, father and grandfather, spent the last several months battling a startling diagnosis — a non-smoking variety of stage 4 lung cancer. Like the disease itself, Fred was a rare type. His commitment to the advancement of heterodox economics built an infrastructure of newsletters and list serves to enable this community of scholars to engage and build ties. He recorded this podcast with me shortly after learning that his diagnosis was terminal. Fred left an indelible mark on the UMKC Economics Department and on heterodox economics. We will miss him terribly. ~Stephanie Kelton
