The Economist, in the time of its 175th birthday, has drawn up and submitted a ‘‘Manifesto for Renewing Liberalism for the XXIst Century’’. Here is carried out an analysis of the main goals of this Manifesto, that is the emphasis on the importance of the idea of liberty as a guideline for life, action and development of every individual and of every community. In the current crisis of liberalism, within the context of a wide political, economic and social crisis of the Western world, the Manifesto tries to give elements for an answer about what seem the main difficulties. This paper offers an illustration of weaknesses and shortcomings of the main elements of the deep difficulty in the liberal thought and in the action of the cultural and political movement drawing inspiration from this, discussing the elaboration carried out by the Economist.
