I knew Lacey for many years, she was always vivacious and insightful. This is incredibly sad news, although not unexpected. Here is the memo which went out today from
Mike Ryan and Bunt Gosh at her last employer, Credit Suisse.

Remembering Lacey Gallagher
It is with deep regret that we have to let you know that Lacey Gallagher passed away on Monday night after a three-year battle with cancer.
Lacey, a Managing Director and co-head of our Emerging Markets Economics team, joined the Bank in 2000 from Standard & Poors where she was head of their Latin American Sovereign Team. Lacey’s career at Credit Suisse was distinguished by an unsurpassed level of energy and dedication that she brought to the job and the Bank. She was singularly responsible for ensuring that we developed an outstanding presence at the annual IMF/IBRD and IADB meetings and was regularly voted as one of the leading Latin American economists by our clients in the various Institutional Investor surveys.
Her passing is a tremendous loss to the Bank and to each of us individually. Her energy and enthusiasm will be missed by everyone who worked with her.
