Claims frequently made by free marketeers include:

  • Economic inequality is, has always been, and will always be with us; attempts to fight poverty have never worked.
    • This is fair because people are not equal in their efforts and, therefore, people will not be equal in their rewards.
  • The fact that most people now have cell phones proves that the free market works to provide equality.
    • This is often claimed by the same people who will freely admit we don't have a free market right now.
