Deepak Lal named president of the Mont Pelerin Society
From the Atlas Network:
Professor Deepak Lal of UCLA was elected president of the Mont Pelerin Society on September 12, 2008 during the Mont Pelerin Society’s 60th Anniversary general meeting in Tokyo, Japan. Dr. Lal has been a friend of Atlas for quite some time, having spoken at several Atlas evens in the past including an Atlas meeting in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland.
Deepak Lal is most recently the author of Reviving the Invisible Hand: The Case for Classical Liberalism in the Twenty-first Century. Atlas has some more information about Deepak Lal from Leonard Liggio, who attended the first meeting of the classical liberal Society in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland in 1947, and served as its president from 2002-2004.
Here's a short video interview of Lal on "Globalization and the Poor" with AfricanLiberty.org.

Correct me if I am wrong, was he the one that received the Nobel prize is economics a while back?

You must be thinking of someone else, Condor. Lal hasn't gotten that level of recognition.

Capitalist Free Trade on a global basis is just great!
But organized "Globalization" is economic control. A very different thing. We should be careful to recognize the difference.
