Your Govt is infected by neoliberalism disease!

How do you know if your Government is infected by neo-liberalism disease?

You will immediately know it by understanding the main points of neo-liberalism
The main points of neo-liberalism Martinez, (2000).

The rule of the market.
Liberating “free” enterprise or private enterprise from any bond imposed by the government (the state) . . . Calls for total freedom of movement for capital, goods and services . . . unregulated markets is the best way to increase economic growth, which will ultimately benefit everyone.
Reduce government regulation of everything that could diminish profits . . . including protecting the environment and safety of the job.
Sell state-owned enterprises, goods and services to private investors . . . in the name of greater efficiency.
Cutting public expenditures for social services
Pressuring the poorest people in a society to find solutions to their lack of health care, education and social security all by themselves – then blaming them, if they fail, as “lazy” ("fatalistic", "lack of need for achievement or McCleland's nAch -- added by me), etcetera.
