                   Dr. Peter J. Boettke '83










ABSTRACT:  Freedom  is crucial both in markets and for ideas. For
society to improve upon the human condition, there must be a free
flow within both. Drawing  on the ideas of JS. Mill, Immanuel
Kant,  FA.  Hayek,   and  other intellectual greats, this essay
examines  the intellectual connection between ideas and goods
and  how freedom of speech and commerce  breaks down  barriers.
This essay argues that freeing channels of speech and commerce
keeps human  behavior in check and sets the necessary foundation
to better the human condition and that without a free flow ofideas
and  goods, society would be worse off
