Neoliberalism | US Political Polarization – The Cynical Historian

Jun 3, 2021

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
