The Free Market

"[The] impersonal process of the market ... can be neither just nor unjust, because the results are not intended or foreseen." Friedrich A. von Hayek

"It constantly amazes me that the defenders of the free market are expected to offer certainty and perfection while government only has to make promises and express good intentions." Dr Lawrence W. Reed.
