Remembering George Rosen


I was very sad to learn about the passing of George Rosen, a friend of over six decades, on 8 January 2018.

I first came in contact with George around the mid-1950s when I was working on my PhD on small-scale industries at the University of Bombay (now Mumbai). At the time, George was visiting the economics department of the university for his research on the Indian industry. Since my research and Georges was on the same subject, my professor, the late D T Lakdawala, introduced us, and we had some interesting discussions, which benefited my work considerably.
