In a premature way, JCC, my dad, died on December 31st,at the young age of Frank Sinatra was probably his favorite singer.
He certainly lived his carloa his way. He died in peace doing what he loved most, doing economics and spreading the ideas of classical liberalism. For him to work during the afternoon of the last day of the year was the most natural thing to do. He achieved what most want but not everyone can: Surely my personal experience with him is different to those of many. If anything, I rather focus on my personal experience introspection maybe?
I want to remember him by reflecting, maybe for the first time, how much he influenced me on key points of my life. I cherish warm reminiscences with him since I have use of my memory.
Those morning walks were among the favorite part cachanosoy my days and remain as one of my most cherished memories of our old times. My first contact with economics was, of course, through him. But not without some initial mistakes on my part. In elementary school as I was told by my mom I thinkwe were asked what our dads do for work. In Spanish, communist and economist sound similar enough for a cachanoskt version of me to get confused.
When I started high school I wanted to become an astronomer due to an astronomy book my mom gave me for my birthday. Years later I passed that book to my sister, who actually started astronomy and then moved to physics.
Then I could do a specialization in astronomy astrophysics if I felt inclined to I now realize my sister might be living my parallel life. But in mid high school we were required to write a short essay on a controversial topic; meaning an essay that would be open to debate different opinions in class. I saw that as an opportunity to explore some economics: I chose to write why to build new machines does not increase unemployment.
But the strength of an argument that did not require too much any? How do you show something that cannot be shown and still be convincing? The second thing that a happened is that he gave me four books to read. After these readings there was no question on my mind. To paraphrase his friend Peter Boettke, dad lived and transpire economics. During my remaining years at high school I read everything I could from his bookshelf.
As you can imagine, a lot of Hazzlit, Hayek, Mises, Friedman, etc. For me he was THE economist and I wanted to be able to think as clearly as he did. As I said, I was always curious why an economic argument that deals with living things instead of empirical regularity can be so strong. This put me in contact with Mario Silar and opened a still healthy appetite for epistemological problems of economics. I consider this, now in the Journal of the History of Economic Thoughtas one of my best papers so far.
I read it of the first time that summer before starting college.

I say the first time because I was so well impressed by Human Action that I read it every summer even after finishing my college degree. It seems I still have some catch-up to do… Needless to say, this is my most cherished piece in my bookshelf. This cacganosky detour is no accidental. For better and for worse, this has always affected how I think about economic problems, what questions to ask, and how to answer them.
There are four papers from dad that merit, I think, special mention. All of them published in Libertas. This journal was discontinued a few years ago and he was still trying to bring it back to life the same cralos he left this world. The title is no accidental. This paper is the outcome of his doctoral dissertation under the direction of Hans Sennholz himself a doctoral student of Mises. I still know of no answers to some of the arguments he puts forward cachanozky this work.
The doctoral committee, I should add, was composed of mathematicians as well. When dad defended his dissertation I was only one, or maybe two, years old and stayed at home with mom. The defense took place in Grove City. Pete Boettke can share colorful recollections of the defense as he was himself there and was the first doctoral dissertation he observed. The best reference I know about history of thought in what respects to theories of value and price.
Classic economists, from Smith to J. Mill did not have a labor theory of value, they had a cost-theory of price. The cost part is not even just labor and, of course, price is not value. Also my first reference for the Great Depression. If there were an English version of this paper it would certainly be an assigned reading in my macro courses. One lesson I always remember is that there is no such thing as fixing the price of gold or an international system of fixed exchange rates under gold standard.
This explanation is flavored with his unique and self-reliant irony. It was my good friend Adrian Ravier who first pushed me into these topics, but was dad who got me ready to deal with them.
This is one of his latest papersalso one that seems to have gone somewhat unnoticed. In this piece he applies finance to economic analysis; think of micro vs finance and macro vs finance, not of financial economics.
This paper left a seed in my head for many years: It was this paper that also put me in contact for the first time with Anthony Evans in the U. In this paper I cite dad as the only work I know of doing a similar application to mine well, it was his application actually.
The seed has transformed into a book structure in my head I still need to discuss with him]. I wish he would have had more time on his busy schedule to read my papers with Pete to give us his comments.
Juan Carlos Cachanosky
I only worked briefly at his online real-time education firm, Ccahanosky Group, after quitting Reuters and before moving to the U. But his passion for economics and teaching was as alive as ever up to the very end.
The eternal optimist, always with a smile ready for everyone. Professor in numerous universities in Argentina, and many countries in Latin America.
He departs this world with students and friendly colleagues all around the world. Humble to the limit. Me gusta Me gusta. Estaba muy orgulloso de ustedes. Thank You for such beautifully written tribute to your father. I can tell you, from being his student in these past two years at the Master in Political Economy, I have learned so much from him. The passion he had for economics, his students was unique.
We also became friends of some sort. Every now and then we would chat before class, talk via Skype or though social media.
I was talking with him about entering the PhD program lately as I was finishing the Master. We would also talk about other passion of him, his beloved Boca Jrs.
Overall this was a great loss for me. I had plans of traveling to Argentina soon acchanosky meet with him in person. Now I will meet him in Eternity. God Bless your father, you and the rest of the family. No tuve el placer de conocerlo pero me hubiera encantado tras tu relato.
Abrazo grande y mis condolencias.
Fue una gran persona y un gran profesional. Habitualmente nos encontrabamos en reuniones liberales donde siempre con su sonrisa a flor de labios me conversaba sobre las cosas de Argentina, Guatemala y otros espacios academicos. Guillermo H Dotto dijo: Tienes que estar muy orgulloso de caxhanosky padre. Recuerdo su vitalidad y sobre todo, su buen humor.
Sin duda, su mejor legado. Mis condolencias y sepan que muchos como yo lo recordaremos siempre con una sonrisa. Cachanosky — Lindisimas palabras Nico, me emocione mucho. Te mando un gran abrazo. Me llevo cachanoskky grato recuerdo de tu padre. Beautiful tribute, and you must have made your father proud. La entrada no fue enviada. Por favor, vuelve a intentarlo.
