Market systems allegedly accept what emerges from individuals’ pursuit of their own interests and ignore the inequalities and injustices that this produces. Considered abstractly, that may be true. But market systems don’t exist in abstraction; they are always part of a larger social system. And it is certainly not the case that societies that rely extensively on market systems ignore inequalities and injustices. Individuals, private groups, and governments regularly use the wealth that market systems generate to provide many kinds of assistance to persons who have fared poorly in those systems.

They are procedures consistent with the “rules of the game,” the promises and commitments that we have made to one another, both explicitly and implicitly, through existing laws, the formal constitutions that underlie these laws, and the moral consensus which undergirds 33 Paul Heyne any workable constitution and defines a particular society. Surveys of academics regularly indicate that economists are much more “conservative” on average than academics in the other social sciences. This results in large part from the fact that the public identifies support of market-coordinated economic systems with conservatism and that economists, who have specialized in the study of market systems, tend to have a much more favorable view of them than do other intellectuals.
