Rising Economist Ion Sterpan Will Be Missed

By Edward Peter Stringham

Ion Sterpan

RIP to the 2017 AIER C. Lowell Harriss Fellowship winner, Ion Sterpan (pictured second from right). Ion attended our 2017 week-long seminar and stated, "this is the most remarkable place that I have been."

Hailing from Romania, Ion recently earned his PhD from George Mason University and had a fellowship at American University. He was a bright young man who was making important contributions to the study of private governance, and he will be missed.
