FMF FEATURE ARTICLE

Liberalism is a package deal


I’ve got a problem with “free markets.” I don’t mean I have an issue with markets being free, but I think the term itself fails to explain what is at stake.

It isn’t markets per se that are free, but people. Markets are only free when individuals within the marketplace are themselves free. Markets are only free to the extent that individuals are free, no less and no more.
