About

Marketism (short for free market fundamentalism) is a loose aggregation of beliefs that generally oppose government and favor private enterprise in the form of free-as-in-unregulated market principles.

Key characteristics include:

A society based on marketist principles would be a form of minarchy or anarchy, but there are no known examples of any such society that is both highly technological and either prosperous or peaceful, much less successful at maintaining human rights or even "natural rights".
