Paul H. Rubin, Larry Ribstein, In Memoriam, Truth on the Market (December 24, 2011),

This article is a part of the Larry Ribstein: In Memoriam (1946-2011) symposium.

I knew Larry from attending many conferences together for many years and from reading and profiting from his work.  I always enjoyed seeing him and considered him a friend.  This news is devastating.  I had recently discussed his work on movies, and tried to induce him to edit a special issue for Managerial and Decision Economics.  Aside from his remarkable publishing record, his paper “Wall Street and Vine: Hollywood’s View of Business” shows that Larry had seen and remembered more movies than anyone I know.  A true tragedy.
