Peter Boettke reports on the emergency meeting of the Mont Pelerin Society held this past weekend in New York City:
speakers included Nobel Prize economists such as Ned Phelps and Gary Becker; famous economic thinkers such as Anna Schwartz, Arnold Harberger, Axel Leijonhufvud, and Harold Demsetz; leading economic policy makers such as Richard Cooper and Justin Lin; major contemporary economic theorists and policy makers such as John Taylor; leading financial journalists such as Martin Wolf; and perhaps the leading financial historian of our age Niall Ferguson. The program was put together by Deepak Lal.
Bonus: Becker discusses the current call for a massively expanded regime of financial regulations.
UPDATE: Bonus #2 — Richard Ebeling takes on the increasingly unimpressive Martin Wolf.
