Mick Moran 1946 – 2018

Mick Moran died suddenly after a heart attack on 3rd April. This was completely unexpected and it is still difficult to accept the death of a collaborator who had such energy and was already up for the next project. He had played a key role in the development of the political dimensions of foundational thinking in our collective, most recently by introducing citizenship arguments And he had shared drafting duties on much of our recent output so that Foundational Economy will be his last and our next book, when published in the autumn. Those who met Mick as a modest, wise old man often did not realise there was a remarkable back story which is summarised in our obituary. He was the child of migrants who had been born into rural Irish poverty; then had a distinguished career as a political scientist from which he retired to join us in our foundational project.  Our intellectual loss is great because this was a life interrupted when Mick was still at the peak of his creative and innovative powers. But we also remember that this was a life well lived and know that the values of imagination of the Foundational Economy book are a fitting memorial.
