The CPRC is very sorry to note the passing of a real friend of the CPRC. Walter, an economist who got his PhD from UCLA, made a real difference in the world in his academic writings and teaching. Walter cited and used our research many times in his writings and his appearances as a guest host on the Rush Limbaugh Show. He was also and foremost a close friend of the CPRC’s founder, John Lott. The video interview provided above shows why Walter was such an important person.
