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

Liberty v. Oppression

Liberty and oppression do not exist on a single continuum. This article will explain the systemic distinctions between liberty and oppression.

Market Systems

Markets, whether free or not, consist of systems. The elements of those systems have connections, or feedbacks, to other elements in the system. Changes in one part in the market lead to changes in other parts.

Economic System Model

Mathematical modeling has rather severe limitations for depicting economic systems. Modeling, however, can prove useful within carefully controlled variables. In this section, I have developed some models of the simple economy for the purpose of demonstrating some fundamental interactions in economic systems.

A Pricing Model

This model — also within the framework of carefully controlled variables — demonstrates the differences between direct exchange prices and money prices.

Complex Markets

Many people don't appreciate the complexity of markets. This section will examine and demonstrate market complexities.
