Thomas Mackay (1849-1912)

at OLL:
    Thomas Mackay was a successful English wine merchant who retired early from business so
    he could devote himself entirely to the study of economic issues such as the Poor Laws,
    growing state intervention in the economy, and the rise of socialism.
    Mackay was asked by the individualist and laissez-faire lobby group, the Liberty and
    Property Defense League, to put together a collection of essays by leading classical
    liberals to rebut the socialist ideas contained in
Fabian Essays in Socialism edited by
George Bernard Shaw in 1889. The result:
  A Plea for Liberty (1891) and
  A Policy of Free Exchange (1894).
