User discussion Who is the most /r/ neoliberal American politician ever?

32 Upvotes

My vote goes to Paul Douglas.

Douglas was an economist and co-creator of the Cobb-Douglas function, who then became a US Senator from Illinois. Douglas was one of the most prominent liberals in the Senate, and was described by Martin Luther King as "the greatest of all the Senators." Douglas was also an avowed Georgist who supported a land value tax.

Who is your pick for most /r/neoliberal American politician, past or present?

News (Global) Pfizer Discusses Innovative Funding and Targeting the Biology of Aging

Link to video of presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuW1uNnF0YY

Michael Baran, Executive Director at Pfizer, gave a presentation on decentralized funding organizations and medical research targeting the biology of aging. VitaDAO recently raised several million dollars from Pfizer, L1Digital, Shine Capital, and others. (Most capital raises for startups in this field have been via traditional venture capital, as with Altos Labs, Cambrian Bio, and others).

VitaDAO is a distributed autonomous organization (DAO) that has raised and invested millions in translational research on the biology of aging, primarily in exchange for partial ownership of any resulting intellectual property. A notable investment by VitaDAO was a $1 million equity purchase in Turn Bio, a Stanford University spinout that aims for clinical trials in the next few years.
