I'm struggling to understand the key differences here. I've got to answer 'In what important respects does neo-liberalism address the weaknesses of liberalism?' so any help would be great... especially if you could point out faults/weaknesses of liberalism aswell!

I'm having the same problem my friend. I saw your post on another thread and I'm taking this module as a subsidiary too.
I've added you on facebook, hopefully we can help each other out

Liberalism is a whole political philosophy whereas Neo-Liberalism is a purely economic strand of thought.
Classical Liberalism would agree with Neo-Liberalism.
The main proponents of Neo-Liberal thought are Robert Nozick and Milton Friedman. In terms of policy makers Thatcher and Reagan are the main ones.

I think Neo-liberalism is capitalism without much intervention/control by the state. Little taxes. Pure economic freedom, with the biggest benefit being that anyone can become rich no matter what your background.
Liberalism I'm not really sure about. I think political (as opposed to the economic of neo-liberalism) freedom.
