Why did this reform has to change name to "libertarianism"?
I think an essential part of this game, is that it doesn't submit to flawed american terminology.

Sorry, but my english is...Hmm...especially for describing this economic things...but I'll try to do my best...

Since I'v got "Liberalism" I have 27,687 Starved to death!!! I can't imagine why?! even I have only 3% Unemployed and an basic income of 186.33 € pcm... How can I solve that problem?Noplan

@Equilibrius:

Think of this: You don't have a job and you just get less than 200 Euros. You'll become homeless and you have to beg other people for money or you have to steal. otherwise you'll starve to death. So I reommand to raise your basic income. Millions of people don't have a job, but just less than 30.000 people starve to death, so this aren't that much people.

But in fact it seems your budget looks all in all bad. For someone who has basic income your taxes are really low.

The correct translation would be "liberalism".

"libertarianism" is the translation of Libertarismus which is a form of liberalism.

Hmm, originally I thought that the liberalism title gave incorrect connotations to the reform. This is mainly because being a 'liberal' here in the U.S.A. is not the same philosophy as liberalism. From what I have seen, what is described in the reform would fit under either liberalism or libertarianism. The text of the reform is mainly focused on economic issues and government retreat from 'areas that it never really belonged to in the first place.' There are variants of liberalism such as social liberalism that advocate the provision of basic necessities to all citizens of the state. There are also variants that say that the only thing the state should do is justice and defense. Others (in the U.S.A) advocate returning to strict adherence to the Constitution. Given the breadth of the topic, liberalism might be the best term, but it might be fun to see some branches of this reform as well.

Liberalism, which I think my post suggests.
Liberalism is only associated to welfare and taxation in the U.S. (it even used to have the original meaning), which I don't consider a reason why everybody else should adjust the terminology as such.

I enacted this reform, did wonders for my economy, less for my citizens. The economy shot up by 10% in one quarter!

However people keep randomly starving to death because of the non existent health and welfare budgets. Also education has took a hit and my nation is slowly sliding back into the stone age (although somehow the Gini coefficient has remained at 0.25 Suspect).

I wish I could reverse this reform, because the only way I'm going to get health up is either by piecemeal increases in the budget or by getting enough influence to enact universal transhumanism.
Just increase welfare again. Kopfkratz
Don't get in panic. The really good effects of Liberalism come a bit later. At first everything seems to ride a rollercoaster but it will get better soon and then you'll like it. The only bad thing is PE-welfare which has to be boost for many quarters. But it's worth the trouble. Jaja
