My list
- John nash for game theory
-Paul krugman for his trade and new economic growth theories (not his macro stuff)
-f.a. hayek for his work on the austrian business cycle theory as well as the economic calculation problem.

Well the idea was to draft a short list so I had to be selective. Otherwise I would agree with you.

I'm perfectly happy to take the compliment, I'm just curious to know what area of influence I've had on him.

Besides, the opening post said "Post a short list of thinkers that have most influenced you along with a short reason why".

Holy shit, Tolkien was catholic? I had no idea.

OT: I dunno. What do you mean "thinkers that have influenced me"?
My parents, friends and teachers are the ones who've influenced my ways of thinking. Them I can discuss things with, and them I know. Not Aristotle or Aristokles, not Voltaire or Rosseau, nor any of those "great thinkers".

He started off in the Church of Ireland, baptised into it at birth infact, (his grandfather was actualy a Church of Ireland priest) then he became an atheist, then he was influenced into converting back to Christianity by Tolkien, then he joined the Church of England.

That said, Church of Ireland and Church of England are pretty much the same thing, they're both Anglican.

I can't really narrow it down, but when i was in college, i met a guy who was really into psychology, he used to be able to read peoples body language, etc. and i found it quite interesting. He kind of used his knowledge to manipulate people at times, and so i learned to take what he said with a pinch of salt after a while.

Ever since then, i have been quite interested in psychology and how people work, and whilst i have never studied it academically, i pick up knowledge from random things that i come across, and apply it to every day life. I know people might say that this is just called growing up, but it is something that interests me and i am always looking for things to read about along those lines.

I thought so. Economics students normally wouldn't write down Adam Smith, Ricardo and Friedman.

Although in America Friedman must be pretty big. I like the stuff he has written. But I disagree that apart from his monetary theory he has done anything of importance. Ofcourse the monetary theory alone would probably be enough for a nobel prize >.>.

William Blake
At the heart of all of Blake's work is the contrast between human beings and the greater majesty of the universe around him. Although human beings can communicate what they see and try to make sense of it, the most logical eventuality is that the interpreter will give up and say, 'I am nothing.'

George Orwell
The common man is something to fight for. People do matter.

Diogenes of Sinope and Hunter S. Thompson
Same reason - both men were original and wouldn't let anyone to tell them any different.

Haruki Murakami
Although you may not matter in the grand scheme of things, the universe is still a wondrous place and you should enjoy the little place of the universe that you inhabit. Also music rocks and so does reading.

Ernest Hemingway
Words are precious. Use them sparingly.

I particularly like Friedman because of the clarity of his explanations. I can not for the life of me name one economist who is as understandable and persuasive as Friedman. I don't agree with some of what he said, but he gets my praise for being clear in a field where many babble too often.
As for the classical economists, they make the list for influencing the thoughts of many and the workings of modern societies. Of course their models were perfected or abandoned with time (or had resurgences in popularity), but their main principles hold true and they explained difficult concepts in relatively easy language.

Lists should be short, but I also appreciate the work of Kenneth Arrow and J. M. Buchanan (among their others and their other work) on Public Choice Theory.
