"The only way that has ever been discovered to have a lot of people cooperate together voluntarily is through the free market." - Milton Friedman

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand". Milton Friedman

"...there exists no such animal as a ‘natural’ laissez-faire system sprung solely from private arrangements" with the result that "the free enterprise system, therefore, carries the label 'made by government'." - (Charles L. Schultze, 1977, The Public Use of the Private Interest, p. 29, 30)
