There is no such thing. Let me repeat, in case you missed this very fundamental economic fact:
FREE MARKETS DO NOT EXIST
I know that will come as a shock to many of you. If you are among that crowd who insists we simply must have free markets, I know your knees must be weak and your stomach's turning. Please, do sit down, still your senses, and attempt to absorb this one fact:
There are NO FREE MARKETS
It is a pipe dream, or as Investopedia explains:
free market is a term used to describe a political or ideological viewpoint on policy and is not a field within economics.
Why is this so? and How do we KNOW this is so?
