Comment: Free Market

(See in situ)

Free Market

The market is just a series of voluntary exchanges between individuals.

When someone sells me something and I buy it, we are both benefiting.

I obviously value what they are selling more than I value the money I am exchanging for it, and they obviously value my money more than the product they sold me, otherwise the transaction wouldn't have taken place.

Government is the antithesis of the Free Market.

It is only because government has the ability to regulate, that banks and large corporations lobby to pass laws beneficial to them.

A Free Market works because of competition, the costumer is king, if a business does not please its customer they will lose that customer to a more competitive business.

Government is the outlet through which monopolies are created and large companies kill competition and subvert the market through the use of regulation.

The people are the free market!

Government and Corporatism/Cronyism are not!
