Peter Bernstein: Dead at Age 90

I somehow missed this news over the weekend, but investor and economic historian Peter Bernstein has died. He was 90.

Whatever you might think of Bernstein’s popularizing of efficient market theory, or of his political views, he was a graceful writer and a wonderful financial historian. His books on gold, risk, the Erie Canal and the early days of Wall Street are classics.
