Free Markets

Introduction

The principles and theories of markets apply under all political systems, yet various forms of intervention distort the normal results from an unhindered market. By free markets, however, The Free Market Center refers to those markets free of intervention. Although free markets exist only as an ideal, they are an ideal that merit working toward.

According to some economic theories, markets require intervention and manipulation in order for them to operate effectively and efficiently. You will see as you read through this website, I adamantly disagree with those theories. I use the term Free Market to distinguish markets free of intervention from those subject to intervention. Thus, when I use the term "free market" I mean: markets free of intervention.

In this section, over time, The Free Market Center will offer a strong argument for the development of free markets (i.e. free of intervention.)
