Re: Edward Kleinbard

An obituary for the late Edward Kleinbard appeared in LA Times. Michael Hiltzik of the Times highlighted some of Kleinbard’s acerbic comments about public policy. "We are inundated today by economic noise and fog designed to generate superficially plausible rationales for what at bottom are simply jerk-like instincts," Kleinbard said. An obituary for Kleinbard also appeared in Law 360. He was also mentioned in Politico.
