Here are some of the falsehoods he addresses:
- The free market creates scarcity and higher prices
- The free market encourages racism, homophobia, and other types of bigotry
- The free market is pro-war
- The free market is always efficient
- The free market is “dog eat dog,” encouraging people to cheat and steal from one another with impunity
- The free market promotes monopoly
- The free market discourages charity and sympathy
- The free market must be regulated
- innovation in a free market causes chronic unemployment
