Its a cartesian coordinate system which places social freedoms on one axis and economic freedoms on the other. It goes by another name with the Libertarian Party. Its very useful for plotting out how people feel politically. One of the interesting things is that when this system is used with a simple 10 question quiz to plot points in the graph, more than 25% of the people are found to be Libertarian types.
