The best economy in the world is a free market economy!
Free market means that the market is driven by supply and demand - there are no safety nets. No subsidies for failure or acts of nature. This means that a businessman must count the cost before taking the risk of a business endeavor, but it also means that he reaps the reward of his risk. He is free to negotiate with whomever he wishes, and the parties negotiating are solely responsible to arrive at terms - no Big Brother interference.
