One reply on “Professor Rachel Dardis, RIP”

Striking to discover that Rachel Dardis published a piece in the American Economic Review about forty years ago. (She estimated the “value of a human life” on the basis of purchases of smoke alarms; confirming the range previously established in the literature.) Certainly a notable pioneering female figure among Irish-born economists.
