“Patrick was held in high esteem in the profession and he applied his immense skill and intense energy to a variety of topics. These ranged from gender research including single sex education and risk-taking differences, to health insurance, to poverty eradication, to exporting. His talents led to a string of prominent publications, a stream of significant grant income and editorship of the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organisation. In the wider world he acted as a consultant to departments of the UK government and to several international organisations.
