Interestsinternational monetary system
Polish economist friend and colleague of Ludwig von Mises who attended 5 Bilderbergs up to 1960.

Michael Angelo Heilperin was featured in Life magazine in 1954 with "a daring plan to unshackle trade and enrich the free world"[1] This focus area fits right in with the general Bilderberg ideology.


Heilperin was born in Warsaw and educated in Geneva where he settled. Heilperin was an associate professor at Graduate Institute of International Studies (IUHEI) at the University of Geneva from 1935 to 1938.[2]

An economist, he was a friend and colleague of Ludwig von Mises and John Know Jessup. His specialization was the international monetary system. He applied the Austrian theory of the business cycle along with his knowledge of the balance of payments "to warn against the rise of monetary nationalism". [3]

In 1947, he wrote an article on the "redefinition of Germany" after the Second World War. [4]
