This panel discusses the role of neoliberalism in the 21st century as a worldview that espouses policies that lead to freedom, prosperity, and growth.


With a rising tide of socialism amongst millennials, it is important to reinforce the benefits of a free society which can be brought about through neoliberal policies. To that end, the ASI and opinion platform 1828 will debate what a neoliberal manifesto looks like in the 21st century.
