I reject the notion of a free market, but...

your definition of a free market, a self regulating market in the absence of gov't, is identical to Greenspan's definition of a free market. A real world example of your (and Greenspan's) definition of a free market is the dark derivatives market, which operates outside of gov't regulation. And the notional value of this dark market, a.k.a. black market, is estimated to be over 600 Trillion. And it was the unchecked risk inherent in this black market that precipitated the financial crisis.
