What I mean by neoliberalism is summarized here in this paper, "Neoliberalism: Oversold?"

If you think neoliberalism means something different, please let me know. I would love to hear it. I agree that it has buzzword potential, but I believe it corresponds to a pretty specific set of government and economic policies, basically what the UK and US have right now. Germany and the Nordic countries are less neoliberal since they have stronger social safety nets, stronger workers rights, and less "free market" (imo, the good aspects of the free market while removing some of the bad).
