News: Call them Liberaltarians:

But where the groups split is on economic policy, which, as Lindsey insightfully notes, is also a question of personal autonomy. The divisions come because libertarians see constraints by government as the chief threat to that autonomy, while liberals are more concerned with how the consequences of one’s birth and uncontrolled economic forces affect the individual’s economic options.

This sharply differing world view can be reconciled, Lindsey believes, if the left can be brought to understand that economic dynamism is the engine of progressive social progress.
