This is a hypothetical, so please don't ask what if you don't speak Greek / French or what does one serve to three corpses.   :lol:

You might want to take some time to read up on the seven people involved before voting via the Wikipedia links in the poll options.  CelebrateCapitalism.org (soon moving to .com) is also in the process of building a separate site for each of those thinkers (click the images below), but they don't have much content there yet.  (Maybe some people here will offer to help?  Just a thought.)




More important than the poll, though, is the discussion.  Do you agree with the choices of the "Big Seven"?  Is there someone who doesn't belong or is missing?  Who would you choose as #8?

I said Aristotle, Adam Smith, and Thomas Jefferson to get some good variety and different historic/geographic viewpoints.

Bastiat would bring the funny.

Also Jefferson & Mises.
