RIP Samuel Brittan, FT economics editor, 1933-2020, a “liberal individualist” by temperament and intellect. Note the La Scala restaurant episode, one of many great (and true) stories about Sir Sam https://t.co/EwJXd8NjnJ via @financialtimes

I’m sad to learn Sam Brittan has died.
I discovered his columns aged 13, while delivering newspapers.
When I joined the FT he was so kind – and we stayed in touch.
A brilliant writer, full of wisdom, on any subject.
RIP Sir Samuel Brittanhttps://t.co/t2lTYGG06R

I only met him once, but he was very nice to me when he didn’t have to be, which is always a measure of quality. I’ve read so much of his writing over the years: it almost doesn’t seem possible that there won’t be any more. A sad day. https://t.co/qkF7hbQcC4

One evening at the FT about 17 years ago, I showed Samuel Brittan how to put paper into his printer, then told him I was leaving for Bloomberg, but was worried about the economics side of the job. He wrote me a reading list, and gave me several of the books on it. https://t.co/CQl2QFdJyV

When I was growing up, Samuel Brittan was something of legendary monster – the man who gave intellectual force to the monetarist ideology. Many years later I actually met him at an IPPR event – where he was the one regretting the attitude of the Thatcher government…

he had been an eminence for decades. Yet he was unfailingly kind and helpful. His combination of brains and generosity is sadly in short supply these days.
