Abstract

Why do so many people who should know better argue that Neoliberalism 'does not exist'? In this paper I examine the disinclination to treat the Neoliberal political project as a serious intellectual project motivating a series of successes in the public sphere. Economists seem especially remiss in this regard.

Keywords: Neoliberalism, Angus Burgin, Leo Strauss, Friedrich Hayek, Mont Pelerin, Classical Liberalism.
