Reference work entry


Karl Vind was born in a small provincial town in Denmark on 3 April 1933. His mother died when he was only a few years old, and his father was often absent from home, so Karl and his two brothers were taken care of by relatives. The family reports early interest and skill in economics and mathematics.
