Maybe you should read my post again because....

I didn't say the alternative to a government regulated economy is an unregulated one. I said the term "free market" is misleading because it suggests an absence of any regulation, including natural law. The post also addresses the difference between human and wild animal codes of behavior. In a Constitutional Republic, many of the unregulated behaviors of wild animals are illegal if practiced by humans, and this also applies to markets.

I believe the term "free market" has been co-opted by monopolies and cartels who want to equate their command and control economic model with capitalism. That's why I drop the word free when describing my economic philosphy and define it as a competitive, capitalist market economy based on the rule of law. For more on this, check out this comment of mine that was posted earlier.
