Article excerpt

Lee, Frederic Sterling (known to his family as Fritz) died October 23, 2014 in Webster Groves, Missouri. He was a Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City since 2000. He fought his whole life for social and economic justice for all people. Dr. Lee was internationally known for his work on alternative microeconomic theory. His approach to economics was always grounded in the real world which kept him outside the mainstream of orthodox economics. He authored two books: "Post Keynesian Price Theory" and "A History of Heterodox Economics." He authored, co-authored and edited numerous other books and articles, including: "Oxford Economics & Oxford Economists" with Warren Young; "Radical Economics and Labor" with Jon Bekken; "The Heterodox Economics of Gardiner C.

Dr. Lee previously taught at the University of California-Riverside in Riverside, CA, 1981-1984; Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL, 1984-1990; Staffordshire Polytechnic in Stokeon-Trent, England, 1990-1991; and DeMontfort University in Leicester, England, 1991-2000. He was a proud, card- carrying member of the Industrial Workers of the World (known as "Wobblies)" since 1985. While living in Chicago he was President of the IWW General Executive Board. In that role, he was instrumental in retrieving for the IWW a remnant of the ashes of Joe Hill, which had found its way into the National Archives in Washington, DC. While living in Leicester, England, he was active in the Leicester Secular Society, which works for an inclusive and plural society free from religious privilege, prejudice and discrimination. …
