Abstract

The reforms in Georgia after the Rose Revolution of November 2003 were referred to be as libertarian at the international level. This opinion was supported by the fact that most of the licenses and permits necessary to start a business were abolished. At the same time, the Government of Georgia regularly violated property rights. Georgian libertarians differ from true libertarians, because for Georgians libertarianism was not a choice based on knowledge and understanding of economics. Quite the contrary, it was a mask for them to cover an absence of economic knowledge.

Keywords: libertarianism, neo-bolshevism, Georgia, Rose Revolution, EU, DCFTA
