To be honest, I was

To be honest, I was kind've mystified by the term neo-liberal in this sticker on a local newspaper box:

What seems to be the most accurate definition I've since come across is:

"Deregulated, globally-integrated, corporate capitalism" or simply put: "Capitalism Plus".

I really wonder why the term 'neo-liberalism' was used to describe this; I can understand neo-con, but I find it hard to relate to seeing Liberalism as bad, or why a renewal of Liberalism would be a bad thing.

I also find it kind of amusing to think about the wto-hating culture jammer getting these stickers printed up at Kinko. I wonder how long it took to decide that that particular font was the perfect one to enlighten the masses about the evils of The Vancouver Sun.
