I was sad to learn today that Tim Fuerst has passed away. Tim received his PhD from Chicago in 1990, was the William and Dorothy O'Neill Professor at the University of Notre Dame, and had a long relationship with the Cleveland Fed. Tim was one of the most enthusiastic human beings I have ever met. He did pathbreaking work on liquidity effects, and his joint work with Chuck Carlstrom at the Cleveland Fed was very influential. It's tragic to lose such a productive researcher and teacher at the peak in his career. Here's an article on Tim in the University of Chicago Magazine.
