It was only on this very thread that I first learned from a poster that Pareto had been a Fascist Party Senator.

G'day Charles,

>Too bad this Pareto was a fascist :>)

Well, he didn't like commies, I'll admit. But he did have the perception to see that methodological individualism ain't gonna give the economist the whole picture. I don't know a whole lot about this bloke, but haven't seen any sign of fascism in the bits of him I've read (thought him rather a decent sort in his comfy-classed way, actually). So what's the dirt? And how good are the sources on this?

Or does that emoticon refer to something I missed?

Cheers, Rob.
