Heroes Of The Free Market Movement To Gather In Dallas

January 25, 1999 -- The world's Most Valuable Players in the global movement toward free-market economies will gather February 6 for a gala dinner featuring Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman and his wife and frequent co-author, Rose. "An Evening with Milton and Rose Friedman in Conversation" is being hosted by civic leaders Gail and Dan W. Cook, III.

The event will cap two days of presentations and panel discussions on how to fuel the trend toward less government and greater individual freedom around the world. Sponsored by Dallas' National Center for Policy Analysis and the Virginia-based Atlas Economic Research Foundation, the conference and gala will mark the 15th Anniversary of the NCPA, founded by economist and native Texan John C. Goodman.

"Because our work taps into the best thinking of free-market leaders around the world, we think an international gathering is a great way to celebrate the milestone," Dr. Goodman said.

Wall Street Journal lead editorial writer John Fund will be master of ceremony for the gala dinner with the Friedmans.

The list of free market MVPs, all of whom have guided their respective governments toward public policies based on personal and economic freedom, include Manuel Ayau of Guatemala, Enrique Ghersi of Peru, Parth Shah of India, Atilla Yayla of Turkey, Cristian Larroulet of Chile, Michael Semin of the Czech Republic, and David Davis, a member of Britain's House of Commons. The Honorable George C. Allen, former governor of Virginia, will address the conferees at a luncheon on Friday.

The activities will be at the Wyndam Anatole Hotel. For further information contact the NCPA Events.
