Template talk:Economic liberalism sidebar
|WikiProject Politics / Liberalism||(Rated Template-class)|
Milton Friedman a neoliberal? Was not Dr. Friedman more of a classical liberal than a neoliberal? When I think of neoliberalism, I think of the likes of Reagan and Thatcher, people who employed classically liberal or libertarian rhetoric when it suited their purpose but whose policies were twistedly conservative. At most, Friedman was an associate of neoliberals, rather than one himself.
Also, I would suggest adding protectionism to the ideas section of this template.
For now, however, I will simply resign myself to removing the goldish yellow colour-scheme, which I had created specifically for the libertarianism template, and which I believe to be completely unsuitable in this template.
- Why is "Protectionism" on this template? Look at the ideas along with it. All of them are free market ideas... Protectionism is NOT a neoliberal concept - it argues against the opposite. I'll move Protectionism so that its in the box with Anti-Consumerism, etc. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:57, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
- And how did the Caro Institute come to be a governing body of neoliberalism (whatever that means)? DickClarkMises (talk) 19:35, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
These things always existed prior to neoliberalism:
- Central banks
- Fiat currency
- Inflation adjustment
- Inflation targeting
- Open market operations
- Consumer price index
Many of these like central banks, inflation, currency, monetarism belong to monetary policy not neoliberalism. They have existed before the neoliberal movement. Monetary policy is not a neoliberal concept. UltimateLiberty (talk) 03:03, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
