William Black: Je Suis Oncle Bernard

New Economic Perspectives has the article Je Suis Oncle Bernard by William Black.

it is my sad responsibility to note the murder of Bernard Maris, a prominent French economist and opponent of financial terrorism via austerity, in the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo.

I doubt the attackers even cared that they killed an economist who probably was one of the few  who spoke up for the needs of the middle and lower classes in France and Europe.  Of course, I don’t know what kind of satire Maris wrote, so I cannot vouch for that part of his public life.  As if someone needed vouching for as a precondition for not being murdered.
