The Cavatina from the Beethoven String Quartet Op. 130, especially the second part of the second theme (when the violins play Bb-Eb-Ab instead of Bb-Eb-Bb). If you want a whole piece (not a movement), then the Beethoven Piano Sonata Op. 109.

Bad economics critics: when you insist everything in mainstream econ is wrong, you leave the door wide open to stuff like this. And good critics (looking at you, ): Econ 101 has its issues, but a C+ 101 student could argue DJT to pieces. Baby/bathwater....
