As I predicted, and as I originally intended - with this Nobel Prize in Economics Profile Series, I've gotten more than what I bargained for. In looking to understand more about what lies behind past and present economic theory, and how the different prizes represent (pardon the redundant use of terms to denote points in time) the past, present and future in mainstream and heterodox economics, I've found out about different Economists, Intellectuals, Politicians, Revolutionaries and all around influential people through the tangential topics that are related to the different schools of economic thought that have shaped the history of economic thought.
One of the people I read about today that falls neatly into one of the aforementioned categories is Roberto Mangabeira Unger, a professor at Harvard Law School and a Brazilian politician, who knows the topics I've only begun to learn about inside-out.
