    But it's the best we appear to have.

    Take this question:
    "If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations."

    How is a right-wing libertarian like Ayn Rand supposed to answer this? After all, they aren't mutually exclusive in the eyes of such people.

    Also, Adolf Hitler is placed on the authoritarian right, despite the fact that on economics both he and Mussolini tended towards the left.

    This is debatable. Although such authoritarian regimes don't embrace economic liberalism and prefer dirigism and strong/big state, Mussolini pursued a "third way", a compromise, or better Hegelian synthesis, of communism and capitalism, but ended up with the latter, supporting the interests of capitalists (he owed them that much), abolishing unions, strikes and workers' rights. May depend on what you mean by "left" and "right" given that across countries the meaning diverges slightly.
