Why should we embrace free markets?

The free market is how a free society shares its wealth among diverse populations. The free market is the best way to relieve poverty.

Of course, the free market operates within a social and moral framework to mitigate injustices and unnatural inequities.

The role of government in a free market is to keep the rules fair for everyone, avoid creating inequities, and adjust rules to overcome market failures (such as monopolies, public goods, externalities, etc.).
