Summary: Franco Modigliani's death in September 2003 deprived the economics profession of one of its most accomplished practitioners-an outstanding theorist who made significant contributions to the design of policies for improving the economic wellbeing. Modigliani, a refugee from Mussolini's fascist regime, received his doctorate from the Graduate Faculty of The New School for Social Research in 1944, with a dissertation that provided an important cornerstone of the postwar neoclassical synthesis. Modigliani's career bridges two worlds-orthodox economics and the progressive tradition associated with the Graduate Faculty. To pay tribute to his life and work the Graduate Faculty is organizing an international conference on "Franco Modigliani and the Keynesian Legacy"
