Neoliberalism as far as I know was implemented by Thatcher and only later signed up to by Labour. Its a contradiction because neoliberalism cannot provide the things you ask for e.g. reduction of inequality. Only politics can. Neoliberalism has deepened inequality.

Neoliberalism provides a further advantage to the financial elite in particular to the 0.1% who are billionaires. It is also one of the ideological driving forces behind the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.
