Free Markets

Famous quotes containing the words free and/or markets:

    A counterfeiting law-factory, standing half in a slave land and half in a free! What kind of laws for free men can you expect from that?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A free-enterprise economy depends only on markets, and according to the most advanced mathematical macroeconomic theory, markets depend only on moods: specifically, the mood of the men in the pinstripes, also known as the Boys on the Street. When the Boys are in a good mood, the market thrives; when they get scared or sullen, it is time for each one of us to look into the retail apple business.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
