We regret to announce that Jack Powelson, the founder of The Quaker
Economist, died on the first day of 2009 after a brief illness. Several
years ago Jack wrote his own obituary, which is now TQE #162
<http://www.quaker.org/tqe/2009/TQE162-EN-Jack.html> . His wisdom,
experience, and loyal friendship will be deeply missed by all of us on the
Editorial Board. - Loren Cobb, editor.

"It seems strange to be writing one's own obituary, but that's the way life
and death go. When I was in college I chauffeured an elderly retired judge
who wrote his own obituary for the newspaper. The least I can do is write
mine for The Quaker Economist, the journal I founded eight years ago.

Yes, this is an obituary. I died on January 1, 2009, after a brief illness.
I had a good life, and it had to end sometime..."

rest of Jack's obituary

<p class=3DMsoNormal>Dear Friends,<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=3DMsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=3DMsoNormal>A most wonderful person died on New Year&#8217;s =
day.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
Jack Powelson, who attended Atlanta Meeting while teaching economics as =
a
visiting professor at Mercer College here in Atlanta, became a personal =
friend of
Janet and I as we shared his love of economics and accounting as well as
Quakerism. <o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=3DMsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=3DMsoNormal>I highly recommend that Friends read his book =
(which is available
on line at no charge) now called &#8220; A History of Wealth and =
Poverty&#8221;
where he answers the question:<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=3DMsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=3DMsoNormal>Jack&#8217;s ideas are still decades ahead of the =
rest of
the economists I hear on the many medium we have.&nbsp;&nbsp; We are =
blessed to
have known him and to have him as part of our community. =
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;He
wrote his own obituary a few years ago and it is a good =
read.<o:p></o:p></p>
