WOLMAN--William. December 14, 1927 - December 5, 2011. Died peacefully at home after an extended illness. Raised in Montreal, Canada, he attended McGill University and went on to Stanford University to complete a Ph.D. in economics before he joined the economics staff at Business Week Magazine in 1960. Five years later he was promoted to economics editor and continued on at the magazine - with some breaks - until he retired in 2001 as chief economist. He also worked at CNBC during the 1990's as chief economist. He is survived by his wife, Anne Colamosca, and his children, Ann Elizabeth, John and Flor. We will miss his quick wit, amazing vitality and intellectual curiosity. He loved his family (and two grandchildren, Luis and Laila) and was always excited about working on his next journalistic project.
