Patinkin was born January 8, 1922, in Chigago, to a family of Jewish emigrants from Belarus. While doing his undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago, he also studied the Talmud at the Hebrew Theological College in Chicago. He continued at Chicago for his graduate studies, earning a Ph.D. in 1947 under the supervision of Oskar R. Lange. Patinkin was a strong Zionist and, while doing his graduate studies, already planned to emigrate to Palestine; in his graduate research he studied Palestinian economics, with a view to making his emigration case stronger, although he did not complete his thesis in this subject. After graduating he held lecturer positions at the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois until he succeeded in emigrating to Israel in 1949, where he was hired by the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He remained at the Hebrew University for the rest of his career and was university president from 1982 to 1986, but resigned due to the poor state of the university's finances. He retired in 1989, and died August 7, 1995 in Jerusalem.
Patinkin's work explored some of the microfoundations of Keynesian macroeconomics, particularly the role of money demand. His monograph Money, Interest, and Prices (1956) was for many years one of the most widely-used advanced references on monetary economics.
