Marian Radetzki, Professor of Economics

Ultimate activities

I was born in 1936, so have by now reached an impressive age. For several years I had planned to cut down substantially on my professional activities so as to be able to devote more time to my private life before I die. Alas, things did not work out according to my plans, and the past years proved professionally quite busy. My most recent work resulted in two publications that were listed above:

  • A Handbook of Primary Commodities in the Global Economy, Second expanded edition (with Linda Wårell), Cambridge University Press, Cambridge UK, 2017.
  • “The synchronized and exceptional price performance of oil and gold: Explanations and prospects” (with Roberto F Aguilera) Resources Policy, Vol 54 (2017), p 81-87, PDF.

These will be my last professional contributions to economics. I have now definitely decided to devote the rest of my life to family affairs and reading and listening to music, to the extent that deteriorating eyes and ears permit.
