Angus Burgin discusses the origins of the Mont Pelerin Society is this clip. It is an interesting analysis – not sure I buying into all of it. I’m not convinced that the argument for free markets is as well-established as he thinks. But watch the clip.
He mentions that Michael Oakeshott never attended an MPS meeting. That, and the title “Planning against planning”, reminds me of what Oakeshott said about Hayek. Something along the lines of “Professor Hayek has a plan not to plan. But that seems to be one plan too many”. Fantastic.
