James Parkinson Report Abuse
James Parkinson (11 April 1755 – 21 December 1824)[citation needed] was an English apothecary surgeon, geologist, paleontologist, and political activist. He is most famous for his 1817 work, An Essay on the Shaking Palsy[1] in which he was the first to describe "paralysis agitans", a condition that would later be renamed Parkinson's disease by Jean-Martin Charcot.

Stephen (William) Hawking Report Abuse
Physicist, Isaac Newton Chair at Cambridge University, Department of Applied and Theoretical Mathematical Physics.His work is in cosmology particularly black holes, singularities and the Big Bang Theory.He predicted that a radiation is produced by quantum effects in space near a black hole.This theory predicts that black holes slowly evaporate and finally expire in a burst of gamma rays.New Age Physics predictions of multiple Big Bang and spatial distance on a linear scale of black hole formation connected by a past and future cone, as a result a Big Bang as collision between two Black Holes and gama burst in the past with a spatial distance and time lag observation in the present as portrayed in Methodological Frame of the Field and later supported by observtions required a serious rethinking on his model.Hawking is very well known for his bestselling books Brief History of Time and A Theory of Everything.

Comments:
In what way has he influenced history? At least Phillip Pettit can point to a political administration which saught to actively implement his political philosophical ideas (the Zapatero administration in Spain). Rawls is highly influential amongst political philosophers of a Kantian or liberal persuasion but his impact on history has, thus far, been practically zero. Even Isaiah Berlin got a letter from Tony Blair.

Comments:
To place this fairly unremarkable academic, despite his 'Nobel' prize of two years ago, implicitly above Greenspan, Ricardo and JK Galbraith, who have not yet been added to the list, is an act of absurdity. His theories are of interest to a sub-section of economists. His theories are not widely known amongst the population at large. His historical impact has thus far been practically zero. Bernanke has had a more sizeable historical imprint, as has Krugman. Tversky and Kahneman (to list more economists) have produced minor revolutions in psychology and philosophy through their work. Williamson does not merit his position on this list.

Leon Walras Report Abuse
Economist, in the Marshallian methodology (after Alfred Marshall) there is a partial equilibrium analysis with ceteris paribus clause so that each market is regarded independently of the other.However, the fundamental feature of the economic system is interdependence and the relationship between the various factor markets and commodity markets exists.The problem is to determine whether the independent behavior of economic decision makers is consistent and all decision making units are in equilibrium.Walras in his Elements of Pure Economics used simeltaneous equations from which all relevant magnitudes (prices and quantities of all commodities and factor services ) are determined by them.There are as many markets as commodities and factors of production.The equality of number of equations and unknowns is neither sufficient nor necessary condition for the existence of a solution.We thus have existence,uniqueness and stability problem of general equilibrium.Imperfect markets increase the problem but some sort of general equilibrium configuration/state can be shown with static properties when there is efficient allocation of resources among firms,efficient distribution of commodity produced and efficient combination of products. Even if the production possibility curve is drawn and Pareto efficiency /optimality (after Vilfred Pareto) is applied, factor ownership and income distribution is a problem as well efficiency in product mix.Despite its shortcomings it is an influential theory in which increasining flexibilty is being attempted.Existence of such an equilbrium with market clearing and market corrections was doubted as well behaved properties of production function and local or non-local uniqueness of equilbrium solution.As money and uncertainity, expectations are introduced, the neutrality of money with short term and long term implication and inter-temporal choices is a serious concern. His work still deserves a second look for showing interdependence in the economy.

Aristides de Sousa Mendes Report Abuse
Aristides de Sousa Mendes do Amaral e Abranches (July 19, 1885 - April 3, 1954) was a Portuguese diplomat. He ignored and defied the orders of his own government for the safety of war refugees fleeing from invading German military forces in the early years of World War II. Between June 16 and June 23, 1940, he frantically issued Portuguese visas free of charge, to over 30,000 refugees seeking to escape the Nazi terror, 12,000 of whom were Jews. This man saved more people then Schindler, but the second got rich a got a movie in his honour. Aristides saved an enormous number of lives, but lost his career for it. In 1941, Salazar lost political trust in Sousa Mendes and forced the diplomat to quit his career, subsequently ordering as well that no one in Portugal show him any charity. He found he also could not resume his law career, as he was prevented from registration, and he was made to surrender his foreign-issue driver's license. Just before the war's end in 1945, he suffered a stroke that left him at least partially paralyzed. In his later years, the formerly much-honored diplomat was abandoned by most of his colleagues and friends and often blamed by some of his close family members. Aided by a local Jewish refugee agency ( which had begun to feed the family and pay their rent upon discovering the situation) the children moved to other countries one by one in search of opportunities they were now denied in Portugal, though all accounts by them indicate they never blamed their father or regretted his decision. His wife, Angelina, died in 1948. Stripped of his pension, he died in poverty on April 3, 1954, still in disgrace with his government. This was a hero, a TRUE HERO.
