Spanish Economist, Science TV Show Host Punset Dies at 82

Wednesday, 22 May 2019 07:38 AM EDT

MADRID (AP) — Eduard Punset, a Spanish writer, economist and lawyer known for his popular science shows on Spanish television, has died at age 82.

Punset passed away in Barcelona following a lengthy illness, relatives said in a Twitter post that included video highlights from a public broadcaster's science show that Punset hosted for more than 18 years with his charismatic mix of passion and irony.

Punset was an economist who worked for the International Monetary Fund. He held a brief ministerial role in the early years of Spain's transition to democracy, and held a seat in the European Parliament from 1987 to 1994.

The family's statement said that Punset's "insatiable curiosity and eternal optimism" were at the heart of his efforts "to share ideas and knowledge."
