Law and Economics Pioneer Walter Oi Dies at 84

Walter Oi, a pioneer in the field of law and economics, died Sunday, January 29, 2013 at the age of 84. I had the privilege of taking Professor Oi's class at the University of Rochester, but I didn't know many of the fascinating details of his life until long after I met him.

The Washington Times  has details regarding his remarkable career, including his pivotal role in the abandonment of the draft and the establishment of a volunteer military.
