statul, capitalismul si piata libera

There's no such thing as a "free market", they are impossible. The "free market" was a concept invented by Adam Smith in order to explain how competition might work. In a theoretical "free market" there would be unlimited competition and unlimited choice, and the consumer would have unlimited knowledge of the relative merits of any of the infinate amount of products available to them. "Free markets" are a thought experiment, nothing more, nothing less, is "laisez fair capitalism".

‎"Capitalism — as opposed to free markets — is indeed about “private property rights,” as its apologists argue. But it’s not about legitimate private property — the right to possess the fruits of one’s own labor and things acquired by peaceful trade with others.
Rather, “private property rights” under capitalism are about ownership of the right to control access to natural opportunities."
