Abstract: The present work delineates the course of neoliberal ideas in Peru from 1938 until 1962, when the Universidad del Pacifico was founded. The introduction of neoliberal ideas in Peru springs from two interrelated sources. One is the Austrian economist von Mises, whose ideas have been introduced in Peru by Pedro Beltran Espantoso through his newspaper La Prensa.The other originates from the Christian Social doctrine of Wilhelm Ropcke in the aftermath of the Second World War and was introduced in Peru by Romulo Ferrero Rebagliati.
