"[The great economists] commanded no armies, sent no men to their deaths, ruled no empire, took little part in history-making decisions... Yet what they did was more decisive for history... more powerful for good and bad than the edicts of kings and legislatures. It was this: they shaped and swayed men's minds."
- Robert Helibroner (The Worldly Philosophers, Simon and Shuster, 7th Edition, 1999, p.13).
