Laissez Faire Economics

From the French term meaning “let it be,” laissez-faire economics is the view that states shouldn’t intervene in the workings of the free market. Less extreme versions hold that states ought to regulate markets and tax its citizens only to the extent necessary to preserve individual freedom and property rights. Most {libertarian}s believe in some version of laissez-faire economics.
