      regarding that exact same unfortunate use of the word liberal.
      It's odd that the same word can mean such completely different things when applied to the political realm, and the economic realm.

      As I said to others here, I'm not sure whether ideas such as neoliberalism are the cause of the worlds evils, or a symptom of an Ayn Rand style, right wing, greedy, and rugged individualistic way of thinking. An economic system run by progressives would obviously not allow a system that harms so many people to benefit a few.

      So as per ideology vs economy, to me it's a bit of a chicken and the egg kind of thing.
