A market that is "free" by virtue of being unregulated is one in which there are no external organizations (especially government) charged with regulating the marketplace. It is essentially social Darwinism applied to economics.

The philosophy which advocates this is known as free-marketism or, more traditionally, laissez-faire economics.
