- Paul Émile de Puydt
As a political economist, he is known as the inventor of the term panarchy, the concept of people in the same jurisdiction having the freedom to choose which government to join, and governments having to compete for citizens.  The term has been borrowed for use by some forms of anarchism. The notion of competitive government can also be found in the writings of the Belgian economist Gustave de Molinari.
