Why some folks don’t like markets

Commenting on this enjoyable post by Don Boudreaux of Cafe Hayek about the realities of health care, JohnK, originator of the 8 word Constitution writes of the “believers in socialized medicine”:

Markets deny them the ability to arbitrarily deny access to people because they don’t like them.

I suggest that this is a corollary of a broader distrust of markets:

Markets deny believers in collective decision-making the ability to arbitrarily tell others what to do.
