In Memoriam  
Prof. Clive Beed
Clive Beed a much respected contributor to IJEBL since its inception has passed away in his native Victoria, Australia.. He will be remembered for his independent mind, integrity, scholarship, and love of wildlife. He created a humane economics in his writings that involved a theological approach that was influenced by his Christianity. He is survived by his wife Cara who co-authored many of their books and articles.

Dr. Deidre Wicks 1949 -2020.
Dr. Deidre Wicks, late of the University of Newcastle, Australia, was an accomplished interdisciplinary researcher and activist on the issues that influence human tolerance of animal suffering in relation to meat-eating. She noted the role of altruism as a sense of self being part of greater humanity and hence a defining factor for those moved to stop cruelty to animals, as against being tied to the more specific interests of family, community or nation-state. Her astute analysis and powers of observation were threaded through all her achievements and writings which were always full of compassion. She is survived by her husband Prof. Roy Green of University of Technology Sydney and IJEBL and their sons Claude and Otto.
Geoffrey (‘Geoff’) Colin Harcourt: 27 June 1931 – 6 December 2021
Emeritus Professor Geoff Harcourt was an Australian patriot and a Cambridge economist as he described himself. He was an integral part of a golden age of economic theory at Cambridge including Piero Sraffa, Richard Goodwin and Joan Robinson to name a few. He was an advocate of post-Keynesian economics (PKE) and made a great contribution to the field. He wrote 17 books by the most reputable publishers, and 360 articles in excellent journals in addition to working with colleagues from around the world. Emeritus Professor Harcourt had many collaborations with colleagues in India and worked closely with Professor of Economics Krishna Bharadwaj of the Centre for Economics and Planning at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. He was so accomplished that it is best to refer to his many publications by him and about him. He was a humane economist and Emeritus Professor K. Vela Velupillai noted in his Obituary in 11/1 IJEBL of his lifelong mentor that he ‘ …was a scholar of impeccable integrity, unrivalled dedication, admirable courage, humane kindness and generosity – especially towards the underprivileged – and his work, both in the academic world and in the ‘practical’ world of the ‘here and now,’ was tempered by wholehearted commitment’.

Prof. Peter Jackson
Professor Peter Jackson served on the IJEBL Advisory Board from its inception and was a much - appreciated supporter of the journal. He was interdisciplinary in his approach from the very beginning of his BA studies at the University of Strathclyde where he explored economics, sociology, industrial psychology, statistics and economic history. He worked on a project at the Treasury for three years examining the growth, management and control of UK Public Expenditure which remained a central focus of his research throughout his career.

Peter came to Leicester University in 1978 and remained there for 44 years. At Leicester he became Director of the Public Sector Economics Research Centre which was part of the Department of Economics of which he later became Head. His subsequent posts at Leicester were many, including creating a Distance Learning Centre MBA becoming Director of the Department of Management, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Acting Head of the College of Social Sciences, and Pro Vice Chancellor. He co-authored 6 books and edited the Political Economy series for Harvester Press. He was Chair of the Social Sciences Committee of the Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA).

Peter was a very valued member of the IJEBL Advisory Board being a great support to Professor Ruth Taplin, the Editor and now retired Professor Chin-Bun Tse Advisory Board member of IJEBL from its inception. Chin-Bun says, “Peter was a great mentor and very supportive. He played a pivotal role in my career.” "Ruth says Professor Peter Jackson was a great man who will be very missed”.


Prof. Maurizio Mistri
Maurizio Mistri, was born in Ferrara, Italy in 1941. Thousands of students attended his lessons on Political Economy and International Economics at the University of Padua, where he taught from 1977 to 2012. He also held various other positions in academia.

Prof. Mistri was active in research until a few months ago. His research interests were mainly in the field of international economics, with an institutionalist methodological approach. In recent years he focused on the philosophy of economics and on the Euro crisis and European integration issues. Over the past year he concentrated on the economic consequences of the war in Ukraine. He was a humanist with great compassion. In over fifty years of scientific based activity, he has written numerous scientific articles and books, the latest of which is 'The Euro Crisis. An Institutionalist Approach' (Padua University Press, 2021) (see above in publications).

He was a brilliant scholar and the the personification of rigour, both moral and scientific. But this rigour at work was accompanied by a wonderful character. He was a very pleasant person, with great modesty. Over 30 years we laughed heartily at his sense of humour. It was easy to love him, I think he never made an enemy. He was a great friend of IJEBL much respected and loved.

Christopher A. Bailey
It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Christopher A. Bailey on July 22, 2023 in Michigan, USA. He was a longstanding contributor to IJEBL through acting as a reviewer and in article writing. He always understood the importance of the interdisciplinary relationship between history and economics in any issue that he addressed, providing him with both foresight and hindsight in his analyses. At Central Michigan University in the United States he was a Professor of Economics with an emphasis on banking while his research endeavors focused on historical research into banking. This emphasis was reflected in his publications.

Christopher was born in Ohio in 1959 and received his PhD from Texas A&M in 2001. He was an early environmentalist understanding the importance and beauty of trees to the planet and planted many trees in his time.

Christopher Bailey, who will be sorely missed, is survived by his wife Nancy J. White who is an Editorial Board member of IJEBL.
