Neoliberalism in the UK, US and EU

Neoliberalism in the UK, US and EU

In the first video of Trevor's series on fiscal and monetary policy largesse, he explains the policy mix of the major Western economies, in particular, that of the European Union. In so doing, Trevor describes different policy reactions to the 2008 Financial Crisis, and defines neoliberalism and ordoliberalism.
Overview

There are many similarities between the approach taken by the US, the UK and the Eurozone to stimulating growth and development. All three take their cue from economic neoliberalism - that is the idea that markets know best and as much as possible should be left alone.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the historical policy mixes used by the UK, US and EU

  • Define neoliberalism and ordoliberalism, and describe their similarities

  • What were the different policy reactions to the Financial Crisis?
