    As per our value as the 1873 network that says can economic justice and prosperity can best be won by free man through the market system? I believe its true coz The market system is the network of buyers and sellers that come together to trade in a given product or service. This is guided by the concept of pic and pay which means you will pic something that you can afford to pay, your choice is not limited but affordability will determine your choice. The way in which you choose to convert your time into value will determine your ability and span of choice and affordability thus resulting in economic justice which is simply the basic and we’ll accepted principle of fairness where there is equal allocation of benefits among participants in an economy.
