Via the @FT:
Alan Budd and @andrewtghill on Sir Samuel Brittan, the paper’s #Economics Editor whose columns were “must reads” for so many of us.
His writing style served as a model for how to describe complex economic developments and link them to policy alternatives.
May he RIP. p

He was very pleasant about it (it may have helped that I’d recently read his excellent book ‘Capitalism with a Human Face’) and the Westbury Road resident was very amused by the situation.
Was reminded of this on hearing the sad news that Samuel Brittan has died. /END

Never even heard Samuel Brittan speak at an event, or even been in his presence but I was seemingly always aware of his momentous intellectual presence in the field of economics.

I had a happy year as Sir Sam’s editor. Great thoughts and a willingness to debate, combined with total inability to operate email. Bizarrely this obit doesn’t mention his office slippers.

Samuel Brittan, economics editor, 1933-2020

When I was growing up, Samuel Brittan was something of legendary monster – the man who gave intellectual force to the monetarist ideology. Many years later I actually met him at an IPPR event – where he was the one regretting the attitude of the Thatcher government…

RIP 🙏 Sir Samuel Brittan (29 December 1933 – 12 October 2020) was an English journalist and author. He was the first economics correspondent for the Financial Times, and has since been a long-time columnist.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
