William Breit, Trinity University economics professor, has passed away

I only met him once or twice. But alot of people knew about him and many bloggers have expressed their condolences. He began his academic career as a student at San Antonio College in 1950 after graduating from Jefferson High School. He went on to write many books and was well known in the economics profession. Here are some of the blogs that marked his passing:
