The Economics profession lost one of its most significant and distinguished intellectual leaders with the passing of Yair Mundlak. Yair was a friend and valued colleague to everyone in the profession and his work established many of the foundations of modern econometric research. He will be remembered not only for his intellectual contributions but also for his kindness and the welcoming personality that he extended to everyone. He taught legions of professionals and his work touched all scholars of economics.
