-- John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873) English philosopher and economist

Many free market and political organizations have issued statements of principle. Everyone has a slightly different idea of exactly what are the principles of the free market. The order in which they appear here is based roughly on the frequency with which these or similar principles are sited as necessary for functioning free markets.

Most statements of free market principles are more elaborate than these seven principles. We have attempted to reduce the principles of the free market to their minimal definition with scientific and legal precision.

These and similar principles form the foundations for the Declaration of Independence of the United States, the United States Constitution and many of it's amendments.
