The Free Market is the Harshest Regulator

From Ron Paul Liberty Report:
The free market is the harshest regulator on the planet. It shows no mercy to businesses that fail to provide consumers what they desire. Man-made government pretends to regulate, while lining the pockets of itself and its closest friends.

The free market doesn't care if consumers like Coca-Cola or Dom Perignon. It doesn't care if people like The Rock or Pavoratti. Whatever consumers want with great intensity, the free market will provide.
If asked "How do we prevent exploitation by the rich & powerful?" Most would say, "government regulation." But as the quote above points out:
  1. The government is run by the rich & powerful
  2. The free market has greater potential to prevent exploitation
