Neoliberalism is why we’ve become so unequal over the course of this party system. As a result, the US is more divided politically than most of us can remember.
Characteristics that unify neoliberals are:
-emphasis of individuality and rejection of groups
-market liberalism and fiscal conservatism (which are kinda the same thing)
-privatization of public goods and infrastructure
-deregulating any corporations
-austerity measures against welfare
-and free trade agreements which allow for more rapid globalization
