Committee for Economic Liberty
AS IT IS THE POWER of exchanging that gives occasion to the division of labour, so the extent of this division must always be limited by the extent of that power, or, in other words, by the extent of the market. When the market is very small, no person can have any encouragement to dedicate himself entirely to one employment, for want of the power to exchange all that surplus part of the produce of his own labour, which is over and above his own consumption, for such parts of the produce of other men’s labour as he has occasion for.
AN INQUIRY INTO THE NATURE AND CAUSES OF THE WEALTH OF NATIONS
-By Adam Smith
Welcome to the Committee for Economic Liberty website!
The objective of the committee is to support issues that will lead to less government laws and regulations resulting in more economic liberty and freedom.
Many today falsely assert that capitalism and its free market system is a failure. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The failure we experience in the United States and across the world is that government attempts to establish the rules and regulations of how so-called free markets are to operate leads to them being anything but free. Governments’ attempts to artificially establish a free market environment have always and will always fail. It inevitably leads to a level of mercantilism disguised as a so-called free market system.
The committee will be active on state and local issues. We will be advocating for issues that will protect or restore free markets such that the opportunity for success will only be limited by “the extent of the market.” and not government. You can expect us to be opposing issues that inhibit economic liberty!
Each issue we support will have its own webpage on the site. Give us your feedback at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
