Free market

The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another. Milton Friedman
Thanks from webguy4, Tony, roastpork and 2 others

I'd wager if you had brought smith up in class your grade would have been lowered.

yes there is ...


Yard sale

Open Market

Flea Market

Penny Stocks

Stock market

Retail Stores

Free markets

What are failing are the markets Obama is trying to control.

Which proves SOCIALISM FAILS.


HECK YOUR SALARY IS A FREE MARKET ADVENTURE..

AND EMPLOYEE IS OFFERED A PACKAGE (SLARAY AND BENIFITS) THE EMPLOYEE SELLS HIS SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE, FOR X DOLLARS, IF THE EMPLOYER DOES NOT OFFEER ENOUGH THE EMPLOYEE SAYS NO.. or if the employee asks too much the employer says no..

THAT IS FREE MARKET ENTERPRISE.

what has failed is when Employees have tried to socialize the free market through unions.

Right to work states have seen employment grow. non right to work.. emploment has left.. free market.
Thanks from sumara

once again your statics can not be argued with but what fayt has said it correct there is not truly free market especially on the large scale. i doubt taxes are going away any time soon and neither are programs like welfare and food stamps. but instead of the president taxing businesses simply to create equality the government should tax so that money can improve our haphazard education system or to create programs so people on welfare and food stamps can get jobs or even start businesses of their own so they can get off of government assistance and stay off
