About the Mont Pelerin Society
The Mont Pelerin Society is composed of persons who continue to see the dangers to civilized society outlined in the statement of aims. They have seen economic and political liberalism in the ascendant for a time since World War II in some countries but also its apparent decline in more recent times.
Though not necessarily sharing a common interpretation, either of causes or consequences, they see danger in the expansion of government, not least in state welfare, in the power of trade unions and business monopoly, and in the continuing threat and reality of inflation.
Again without detailed agreements, the members see the Society as an effort to interpret in modern terms the fundamental principles of economic society as expressed by those classical economists, political scientists, and philosophers who have inspired many in Europe, America and throughout the Western World.
About the event:
This year marks the very special occasion of the Mont Pelerin Society’s 75th anniversary. The 2022 Mont Pelerin Society Meeting in Oslo was the perfect occasion to celebrate ideas, our shared values, and the lives of members that over the years have worked tirelessly to advance the free society.
Lars Peder Nordbakken and the program committee have put together an outstanding agenda of topics, speakers, and discussions focused on the very relevant subject “Liberal Institutions and International Order—Renewing the Infrastructure of Liberty”.
