    free market capitalism? Prices are set by demand and supply alone, with no artificial price or demand restrictions.

    Think of a lemonade stand run by kids. If they charge ten cents a glass, they'll probably sell a lot of lemonade. But if they raise the price to $1.00 a glass, they probably won't have many customers.

    That's free market capitalism. The merchant decides what price to charge for his product in order to make the most profit.
