Published in mid-July, the Summer 2011 issue of Antitrust magazine contains an article by Jonathan L. Rubin entitled: "The Premature Post-Chicagoan: Alfred E. Kahn." The article is a remembrance of the political and scholarly achievements of Cornell University Professor of Economics, Fred Kahn. Professor Kahn, who died in December 2010, also served as Chairman of the Economics Department and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In Washington, Professor Kahn led the deregulation of the U.S. airline industry as Chairman of the (now defunct) Civil Aeronautics Board under President Jimmy Carter and became "Inflation Tsar" as economic adviser to the President. He wrote the authoritative economic text, Economics of Regulation-Principles and Institutions and received the American Antitrust Institute Antitrust Achievement Award (now known as the "AAI Alfred E. Kahn Award for Antitrust Achievement," in honor of Professor Kahn). Antitrust magazine is published by the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law and is the most widely circulated antitrust periodical in the world.
