4. As an econ major

As an economic undergraduate, hoping to go to graduate school, my impression has been that Conservative Neoliberalism isn't seen as mainstream but is in fact a fringe element of the economic community, kind of like climate deniers. Now I could be wrong but that is the general perception at my university economic department. Though my interpretation is that there is a lot of room between the failed Neoliberal policies of South America US colonialism and being pro free trade. I mean I consider myself very liberal, pro union, and probably plan to specialize in Marxist economics but so far in my studies FAIR free trade still makes sense in terms of an efficiency point of view and should be encouraged. With that said free trade does not = austerity.
