Abstract and Keywords
This exchange between Judge Posner and Professor Becker — two founding fathers of our discipline — was composed almost three years ago, but the perspective and wisdom of this exchange remains most relevant to this day. Since then, Professor Becker has died; Judge Posner has added a brief remembrance of Becker at the end of this exchange.
Gary S. Becker, University Professor, University of Chicago; Professor, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business.
Richard A. Posner, Judge, United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals; Senior Lecturer, University of Chicago Law School.
