The Free Market Center
I have just wrapped up the first draft of my article on Economic Value.
Find out about Free Markets.
In The Free Market Center you will find information, explanations, and conversation about free markets—their structure, the forces that drive them, and the theories that explain them.
You can either gain the knowledge of free markets and use that knowledge to protect your prosperity and liberty, or you can watch your liberty (and your lifestyle) slip away.
Much of the misunderstandings about free markets result from inaccurate or faulty reasoning. We must apply sound reasoning to truly understand the nature of free markets.
The focus of this website is free markets. We must, however, understand some basic principles that apply to all markets.
Money plays such an important role in the behavior of markets, that we have devoted an entire section to the clarification of the nature and role of money, and the function and operation of the banking system.
Since I have defined free markets of those free of intervention, I must describe intervention and its effects on markets.
I have provided users access too many additional resources, which I have placed in this section.
The Free Market Center Journal will provide commentary on theoretical and topical issues regarding free markets.
The precise use of words in terms play an important role in the understanding of concepts regarding free markets. I have set up a separate section to define the lexicon used on this website.

You will also find that address at the bottom of most pages.
Find an outline of the structure of this website.
If we ask you to spend time examining the information provided on this website, it seems only fair that we should disclose some information about the developer of this website and some of the concepts upon which it is based.
The contents of the appendix either goes into greater depth or does not fit the main site format.
We have tried to keep those "Under construction." notices to a minimum. Maintaining continuity during live development, however, sometimes requires posting pages before we have fully developed the content.
In the meantime, thanks for your patience.

"Believe nothing. No matter where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."
“In times of change, learners inherit the world, while the learned remain beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”
“How is it that humans have progressed so rapidly in science, mathematics, and engineering, yet we continue to exhibit behaviors that result in misunderstanding, suspicion, bigotry, hatred, and even violence in our dealings with other people and with other cultures?”
