Tribute to Professor Philip Black

The passing of Philip Black in Cape Town at home on 19 June 2015 brought to an end the life of an extraordinary polymath. Philip was not only a doyen of South African economics, but also a highly talented musician, as well as a sportsman of note. Quite apart from his prodigious giftedness across such a vista of human endeavor, Philip will be remembered by an astonishingly wide range of people for his generosity, gentility, open-mindedness and sheer zest for life. His full obituary “Obituary: Philip Andrew Black: 1947-2015”, Dollery BE, 2015 was published in: South African Journal of Economics, v. 83 (3), p. 472-474 (2015) — issn:0038-2280
