Nonsense. You ignore a huge chunk of the history of philosophical thought and debate. Yes none of that is evidence, but your not talking about evidence now, your talking about reason. I'm not ignoring the history of philosophical thought and debate. I've done a considerable amount of reading on the matter.....Guess what......????....There is no evidence.
Guess what else.....?????......Reason is on my side here.
ts never been totally free, but various markets have been highly free, and the more free they are, all else being equal (or of course all else being better), the more efficiently they produce wealth.
Actually markets that are extremely un-free have, in fact, produced huge amounts of wealth.
Freedom hasn't been shown to breed wealth......It works the other way around.
The more government controls the market, the more those with political influence will oppress, and the more those with wealth will seek to gain political influence. The more anybody controls the market, the more those with influence will oppress, and the more those with wealth will gain political influence.
People with wealth have tend to have more influence......You can take that to the bank!
