Laissez-faire is a French phrase meaning "leave alone" or "hands off". It refers to the economic and political doctrine that markets operate best without government interference.

That doctrine is key to Libertarianism.


Laissez-faire is also the name of a fictional political party in Boston T Party's novel, Molon Labe!
