Sam Seder: The Difference Between Libertarian and Neoliberal Ideology

Sam Seder is basically right here.  Neo-Liberals, and I guess I’m one of them according to Sammy, believe that government has a role to play in helping the less-fortunate help themselves by providing childcare, education, help finding a good job, etc.  They also believe that government should help people when they are down with income assistance so that they can pay their bills in the short-term while they are improving themselves and preparing to go to work so that they can take care of themselves.

Libertarians call that big government and say that government has no role here.  They say that the market will take care of these people through private charities and privately funded foundations that deal with food assistance, health care, housing, education, job training, job placement, etc.  If government would just get out-of- the-way, more Americans and business’s would have the resources needed to help the less-fortunate and we would have fewer people in poverty.
