with the etymology of the terms "neoliberalism" and "neoconservatism"...
Neoliberalism: An approach to economics and social studies in which control of economic factors is shifted from the public sector to the private sector. Drawing upon principles of NEOCLASSICAL ECONOMIC, neoliberalism suggests that governments reduce deficit spending, limit subsidies, reform tax law to broaden the tax base, remove fixed exchange rates, open up markets to trade by limiting protectionism, privatize state-run businesses, allow private property and back deregulation.
So we've established that neoliberalism draws upon neoclassical economic policies ie Founding Fathers.
Now Neoconservatism (you'll like the CONSERVATIVE source lol):
"A neoconservative (also spelled "neo-conservative"; colloquially, neocon) in American politics is someone presented as a conservative but who actually favors big government, interventionalism, and a hostility to religion in politics and government. The word means "newly conservative," and thus formerly liberal. A neocon is a RINO Backer, and like RINOs does not accept most of the important principles in the Republican Party platform. Neocons do not participate in the March for Life, stand up for traditional marriage, or advocate other conservative social values. Neocons support overthrowing foreign governments even when the results are new regimes likely to allow persecution of Christians. "
There's no "neoconservative economic theory" and there isn't a "neoliberal political theory": one is a term to describe an economic theory (neoliberalism), the other a political theory (neoconservatism).
Ron Paul is a neoliberal as is the Austrian School and so were the Founding Fathers.
Hope this helps your confusion but I somehow doubt it...
