Market liberalism

The term "market liberalism" is used in two distinct ways.

Especially in the United States, the term is often used as a synonym to classical liberalism.[1][2] In this sense, market liberalism depicts a political ideology, combining free market economy with personal liberty and human rights, in contrast to social liberalism, which combines personal liberty and human rights along with a mixed economy and welfare state. The former kind, is also known in the US popularly as "libertarianism".

In Europe and elsewhere, the term market liberalism is often used as a synonym to economic liberalism,[3] depicting a policy supporting the economic aspects of liberalism, without necessarily including the political aspects of liberalism.
