R.P. Louis-Joseph Lebret
1897 - 1966

French Dominican priest, economist. Lebret created Économie et Humanisme - a center for research in economic theory - and assisted in the founding of development agencies in underdeveloped countries around the world. He helped draft some of the documents of Vatican II, especially Gaudium et Spes and Populorum Progressio.
