Zeckhauser, Richard. "Thomas Crombie Schelling (1921-2016): A Pioneering Game Theorist Who Made the World a Safer Place." Science 355.6327 (February 2017): 10.


Thomas Schelling, the distinguished economist, died on 13 December 2016 at his home in Bethesda, Maryland. He was 95 years old. Schelling applied his prolific work in game theory to arms control and deterrence, negotiation strategy, and most recently, global warming. His strategic insights made the world a much safer place.
