Liberal values can be divided into social, political and economic. An individual may be socially liberal but not an economic liberal; others may be overall liberal, but not when it comes to political structures. Human rights and decency is the output of liberal social work. Democracy is an output of the liberal political project, and, free market capitalism is the result of liberal thinking on markets.

Liberalism does not automatically require a democratic structure around it18, however, no other system of governance has engendered and supported consistent liberalism10. The very meaning of "democracy" has now come to imply a range of liberal values10.

3. Economic Values
