Adam Smith

Adam Smith was one of the key figures of the Scottish Enlightenment. Smith is best known for two essays. The first is The Theory of Moral Sentiments, and the second An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, usually abbreviated as The Wealth of Nations. The Wealth of Nations is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. Smith is often cited as the "father of modern economics".

His insight will be greatly beneficial to our island community because he essentially founded the principles on which our economy works today. His help would be irreplaceable in kick starting our own economy.

Milton Friedman

Milton Friedman was an American economist and writer who taught at the University of Chicago for more than three decades. He won the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. As a leader of the Chicago school of economics, he influenced the research agenda of the economics profession. A survey of economists ranked Friedman as the second most popular economist of the twentieth century after John Maynard Keynes.

Our island would be greatly honored to have Friedman advise us, his valuable experience as both an economist and a teacher are things we are desperately in need of in our newly formed society.

Friedrich Hayek

Friedrich Hayek was an Austrian economist and philosopher best known for his defense of classical liberalism. In 1974, Hayek shared the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences with Gunnar Myrdal. Hayek was a major political thinker of the twentieth century, and his account of how changing prices communicate information which enables individuals to coordinate their plans is widely regarded as an important achievement in economics.

His political thinking, combined with his knowledge of economics will help our island country to get settled and keep us in a situation where our economy and our political stances are on he same playing field.

John Maynard Keynes

John Maynard Keynes was a British economist who built on and greatly refined earlier work on the causes of business cycles, and is widely considered to be one of the founders of modern macroeconomics and the most influential economist of the 20th century. His ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics.

Keynes is considered the founder for modern microeconomics, and as the only advisor on this list with an extensive background on the subject, his assistance would be vital and his work on the business cycles will help us sort out our own so that businesses may thrive on our island.
