Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'll start (following the rule: no one from your own country):

Adam Smith
Max Weber
Janos Kornai

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes

I think that these four authors are critical. Clearly Hobbes (Leviathan), Adam Smith, and the great Max Weber.
I think the Hungarian János Kornai is a good proposal. The Economics of Shortage is essential.
