    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!

    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.
