Manuel F. Ayau, 1925-2010

We just received word that Manuel Fr. Ayau died yesterday. He is the founder of Universidad Francisco Marroquin, author of Not a Zero-Sum Game, and a dedicated Misesian fighter for truth. Lew Rockwell wrote about his fight for freedom here. His lasting legacy is a huge presence for Misesian ideas in Latin America and many excellent students all over the world. As Robert Higgs has written, “He was also a successful entrepreneur, an active participant in the public affairs of his country, and a dedicated champion of liberty there and throughout the wider world. The proud patriarch of a beautiful family, a warm friend to countless adherents of classical liberty, and man of tremendous energy and striking courage, he exemplifies the realization of the finest potential that human beings can achieve.”
