Should politicians intervene directly in the market or not? When it comes to supplying citizens with goods and services in the best possible way, better not.

Should politicians intervene in the market economy?

The majority of economists say that politicians in a market economy rarely have any reason to intervene directly in the market. They should not also pursue employment or social policy goals through direct market intervention.

For many citizens, however, it seems quite desirable and appropriate if politicians try to achieve certain goals. They do this through direct intervention in market processes faster.
