Pithy and Profound is a pretty rare combination. Here, I think, are a few (Though both pretty recent):
1. Thomas Schelling
2. Swedberg (Though not an economist)
3. Mancur Olson

Jane Jacobs has to rank

"Pithy and profound" makes me think immediately of Thomas Sowell.

I second re: Sowell (not that the others aren't deserving as well).

The Antarctic penguins are dying, we will go to save it
