RIP, Sudha Shenoy

The famous economic historian Sudha Shenoy passes away after a bout with cancer.She was well versed in Economic history and Austrian economic theory.She was the daughter of BR Shenoy,the only voice of dissent against Nehru in the post world war II era.He had once wrote a report that if Nehru’s plans come in to existence,we would have a foreign exchange crisis and inflation,which obviously made Nehru upset.In an interview with The Austrian Economics Newsletter,she once said “I’m prepared to say that nearly every economics department in the world could be shut down without having an ill-effect on the world of ideas.”How right she was!
