|Description:||2012 General Meeting of The Mont Pelerin Society, "New Space for Competition"|
|Location:||Prague, Liberalni Institut, Czech Republic|
|Subject:||Since 1947, 32 General and 27 Regional Meetings have been held mostly in Europe but also in the United States, Japan, Australia, and South America. Membership has risen from under 50 to over 500. It has attracted men and women from almost 40 nations diverse in academic discipline, age, and renown. Members have included high governmental officials, Nobel prize recipients, men of affairs, journalists, and scholars -- all philosophically isolated in their own communities and anxious to engage in discussion of fundamental issues with persons sharing common interests and points of view. Meetings last a week, usually at the beginning of September. Papers on subjects of common interest are read, discussed, and criticized. The society has not sought publicity, but neither does it strive to be secretive or anonymous. It is a collection of individuals, no one of whom may speak for another.
