Any tool that is useful can be used for good or evil. So it is with influential ideas that are put into practice. An outstanding example is Marx. The way his ideas were interpreted by Vladimir Ilich Lenin (Wladimir Iljitsch Uljanow, sometimes Ilyich 1870–1924), Joseph Stalin (Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, 1879–1953), Mao Tse Tung (1893–1976), and Fidel Castro (b. 1926) led to tens of millions of deaths and untold misery for hundreds of millions of people for more than half a century. Some economists think that ignorance or inattention to the consequences of ideas has led to social harm when the ideas are made into policy.
They could be of some importance. No matter how influence is evaluated, its importance is conditioned by time. Perhaps the truest measure of lasting influence occurs when a person’s contribution passes into everyday usage without attribution, as, for example, with marginal utility and many mathematical techniques. Even when this happens, if enough time passes, the relative importance of an influential contribution is less, because the total body of knowledge increases. Any single contribution becomes a smaller proportion of the total body of knowledge as it takes its place along with other contributions.
