Louis Rukeyser Dead at 73.

In Memory

Louis Rukeyser, economist and commentator who hosted PBS's Wall Street Week for 32 years has died of multiple myeloma. Rukeyser whose pun-filled monologues and talent for making complicated economic issues sound simple was perhaps the publics favorite economist for much of his television run. Hitting his popular culture peak in the 1980's Rukeyser was mentioned or shown on the television series Family Ties and the movie Uncle Buck.
