The free markets are under pressure. Socialism is becoming more and more popular. They criticize the free market and are looking at socialistic governments. Those governments are running really bad economic policies and that becomes more and more popular. They focus on the shortcomings of the free market and solve them by stealing money from those who produce.
Even the biggest opponents of the free market must admit that it is not that bad. After all: the free market provides the day to day goods we need. Ongoingly those goods are being improved. The labor conditions are improved and the poverty went down. Just look at the current situation in the world.
If we look at the creation of welfare than we see that something really great happened. Poverty is going down around the world. The worker paradises had really poor people. The workers’ paradise had terrible working conditions.
One of the best remedies for the negative side effects of the free market is the welfare state. At least, in the vision of the critics of the market. But if we look at what the welfare state does, then we see that it is unnatural to have this. Who enjoys the idea of being dependent on the government?
If we look at the biggest point of critics upon the free market is just that the free market is bad. The market is bad because the people on benefits didn’t benefit from it. It is bad because entrepreneurship is not benefiting everyone equally. This is for good reasons. After all: the entrepreneur takes risks while the worker simply leases out the hours.
It is time for us, defenders of the free market and common sense, are back on the street and win.
