Show Summary Details


This chapter uncovers neo-liberalism's specific conceptual pattern from a pool of virtually unlimited possible combinations. It identifies neo-liberalism's conceptual configuration and its distinctive identity as an ideology. The book contends that neo-liberalism represents much more than a simple commitment to unfettered free markets; it is a complex ideology with many individual strands, which come together to form a coherent movement in opposition to collectivism.

Keywords: neo-liberalism; collectivism; conceptual pattern; free markets
