      Neoliberalism was an economic philosophy that emerged among European liberal scholars in the 1930s attempting to chart a so-called ‘Third’ or ‘Middle Way’ between the conflicting philosophies of classical liberalism and collectivist central planning.[1] The impetus for this development arose from a desire to avoid repeating the economic failures of the early 1930s which conventional wisdom of the time tended to blame on unfettered capitalism, and a simultaneous concern with avoiding the inhumanity of National Socialism. In the decades that followed, neoliberal theory tended to be at variance with the more laissez-faire doctrine of classical liberalism and promoted instead a market economy under the guidance and rules of a strong state, a model which came to be known as the social market economy.
      Is that what you mean?

        The all-authoritative Wikipedia, which receives contributions from all and sundry and which doesn't reveal who said what.  This is why all college professors recommend its use in scholarly papers -- not.

        Very reliable -- not.

        Try David Harvey's "A Short History of Neoliberalism" or Naomi Klein's "The Shock Doctrine" or Richard Cockett's "Thinking the Unthinkable" or Gerard Dumenil and Dominique Levy's "Capital Resurgent" or Kees van der Pijl's "Global Rivalries from the Cold War to Iraq."
