Development Economics, Then and Now

  • T. N. Srinivasan


I am honoured to speak on the occasion celebrating the contributions of our esteemed colleague, Professor Hans Linnemann. Although I had come to know of him earlier through his writings, if memory serves, I met him for the first time at the International Institute for Systems Analysis at Laxenberg in Austria where both of us were involved in their Food and Agriculture Project. Since then we have interacted on several occasions, including meetings of the Scientific Advisory Board of SOW. He was a discusser of a paper of mine at one conference. I continue to cherish the memory of not only the valuable comments he offered on the paper but also the polite and professional manner in which he delivered them.
