Abstract: It is widely argued that European leaders wishing to improve the competitiveness of their economies must emulate the harsh and regressive neo-liberal policies associated with the Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Margaret Thatcher. The choice is between neo-liberal reform and no reform. My paper challenges this gloomy understanding. Between neo-liberal reform and no reform, a number of European countries have pursued a course of what I call "progressive liberal" reform. By "progressive liberalism," I mean policies that appropriate the goals of neo-liberalism, but pursue these goals in a manner that preserves or even enhances equality and protections for the disadvantaged. After reviewing the challenges that economic liberalization poses to progressive parties, my paper examines progressive liberal reforms in three areas: reductions in social spending, tax cuts, and labor market flexibilization. For each case, I proceed in four steps: 1) I first define the traditional leftist position that opposes liberalizing reform; 2) I next present the neo-liberal position, which favors liberalizing reform with regressive distributional implications; 3) I then show that the liberalizing reform in question harbors a progressive potential; 4) Finally, I describe how the reform has been implemented in practice, in a particular European context, so as to capture many of the benefits associated with neo-liberalism, while safeguarding progressive values and the needs of low-income and disadvantaged groups.

Abstract: War diffusion is a neglected topic in the trade-conflict debate. I draw on the insights from the economic liberalism literature and show that trading partners of the participants in an ongoing war, are more likely to intervene to settle the conflict.

Abstract: Radical orthodoxy is an ambitious theological project that attempts to establish a new theological basis for the post-modern world. It rejects modernity’s claim to have abandoned the religious basis of society. Radical orthodoxy asserts that modernity’s social edifice is predicated on theological ideas that arose in the late medieval period beginning with Duns Scotus’s rejection of Thomas Aquinas’ view of God as the Platonic Good in which rightly ordered human beings participate for a view of God conceived as arbitrary and absolute Power. This theological understanding of power informed all the disciplines below it, including politics. Government, rather than a social good rightly ordered toward the Good, becomes the omnipotent state of Hobbes. Liberalism, the modern political order, is at best a means of balancing power against power. Radical orthodoxy calls not so much for a return to Thomas Aquinas—who had his errors—but a return to Thomas so that that we can correct the error of Duns Scotus and develop theology and politics in a different direction.
While radical orthodoxy criticizes liberalism as the political theory of modernity, liberalism offers a way forward for radical orthodoxy. Liberalism has its foundations in Christian presuppositions about man shared by modernity. Rather than an enemy, it may provide a political theory that supports many of radical orthodoxy’s theological claims by embodying many of radical orthodoxy’s theological assumptions. Rather than attacking liberalism as a misguided political theory of modernity, radical orthodoxy should embrace liberalism as a viable and moral political theory.

Abstract: Do liberals and conservatives accurately estimate the prevalence of their opinions and preferences among others who share their political beliefs? In two studies we examined whether liberals underestimate the extent to which other liberals share their opinions and preferences, and whether conservatives overestimate the extent to which other conservatives share their opinions and preferences. We further examined whether these effects are due to differences between liberals and conservatives in the desire to feel unique and nonconformist. Participants provided their opinions and preferences for both political (e.g., whether America should strive to strengthen its military) and nonpolitical (e.g., whether they like poetry) items, and estimated the prevalence of their evaluations by indicating the percentage of other participants in the study (Study 1) or Americans (Study 2) sharing their political beliefs who would agree with each item. Lastly, participants completed the Need for Uniqueness Scale (Study 2), which measures the desire to feel that one’s actions and opinions are unique and nonconformist. Results revealed that liberals underestimated the extent to which other liberals actually shared their opinions and preferences, whereas conservatives overestimated the extent to which other conservatives actually shared their opinions and preferences. These differences were explained in part by liberals’ greater desire to feel unique in comparison to conservatives. Taken together, these findings suggest that the motivational underpinnings of political ideology are important determinants for building consensus, which could have direct consequences for the success (or failure) of political movements.
