100 Most Influential Libertarians: A Newsmax/FreedomFest List
http://www.newsmax.com/BestLists/libertarians-newsmax-freedomfest/2017/06/01/id/793510/

I say nothing about the rank order of those mentioned in the latter compilation, except for the fact that Ron Paul is ranked at number 1, and that is entirely justified. I also omit mention of those who in my opinion might well be influential, but not as libertarians, since they do not at all deserve this honorific.

However, I offer the names of several eminent and influential libertarians who certainly deserve inclusion on any list of the 100 Most Influential Libertarians, but, yet, alas, were excluded:

Thomas J. DiLorenzo
David Gordon
Jeffrey M. Herbener
Hans-Hermann Hoppe
Jesús Huerta de Soto
Jörg Guido Hülsmann
Peter G. Klein
Yuri N. Maltsev
Joseph T. Salerno
Pascal Salin
Mark Thornton

From whence sprang these names? From the list of senior fellows of the Mises Institute who were not included on that list. Only about a half dozen were, including me.
