Chap who lived back in the nineteenth century. Grew a big beard, in which he invested quite a lot. Had a good head for mathematics and wrote a lot about property and political evolution. A bit boring, not always on the money, and misunderstood by airheads and meatheads, as dead white males usually are. He overestimated both human generosity and the idea of membership of the working class as a badge of pride. Someone recently posted that he taught that the lazy should be allowed leech off the hard-working. This actually is a pretty good picture of present-day America, where the lazy keep getting away with it because the hard-working keep voting for them.
Karl Marx. A bit esoteric, but a middling good read if you like to stretch yourself.
