 Laissez-faire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Laissez-faire (lɛze fɛr) is short for "laissez faire, laissez aller, laissez passer," a French phrase meaning "let do, let go, let pass." First used by the eighteenth century Physiocrats as an injunction against government interference with trade, it became used as a synonym for strict free market economics during the early and mid-19th century.
Critics may consider laissez faire as only an ideological veneer, including for the public a simple type of folk mythology appealing to nostalghic sentiment, obscuring what is actually a system of localist protectionism often associated with typically conservative politics, which in turn may only function in the context of elite-controlled economic expansionism, (or economic imperialism)

The reaction against laissez faire began in the mid-19th century and found expression in the factory acts and elsewhere.
The phrase originated with the Physiocrats, 18th-century French economists whose maxim was laissez faire et laissez passer (literally, ‘let go and let pass’ – that is, leave the individual alone and let commodities circulate freely).
This reaction was inspired partly by humanitarian protests against the social conditions created by the Industrial Revolution and partly by the wish to counter popular unrest of the 1830s and 1840s by removing some of its causes. /Laissez+Faire   (327 words)
