InfoPaul C. Fisher (10 October 1913 - 20 October 2006) was an American inventor and politician. He invented the Fisher Space Pen. He held the patent for this invention, which is the most lucrative in the history of pens.

Fisher unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 1960 and 1968. In 1960, he was the only candidate besides John F. Kennedy on the New Hampshire primary ballot, although Hubert Humphrey and other candidates were also in the race and on the ballot in other states.

Paul Fisher proposed the replacement of all existing sales and income taxes with a single graduated asset tax on those with assets of at least $100,000. He wrote a book published in 1988, The Plan: To Restore the Constitution and Help Us All Get Out Of Debt (ISBN 0961984309), to promote this idea.
