That’s bullshit. The modern free market “ideology” arose in the early 20th century from the works of Mises, Hayek, Friedman, and Rothbard (all Jewish) who were combatting authoritative central economic planning that was being used by governments all over the world to deprive individuals of their Liberty.

Countdown for the predictably empty "weeellll actually"…
The big ell Liberty always looks stupidly evangelical.
If I didn’t know any better I would have thought that was an alt-right propaganda piece. That’s where you typically see this sort of anti-academic sentiment. But it is true that leftists like FDR were scared of people like John Maynard Keynes, who is one of the greatest economists of all time.
Economists are not responsible for our problems. That’s complete nonsense.. They are responsible for educating people. Selfish, ignorant politicians are responsible for our problems, because they are the ones who implement destructive policies. Guess who elects them? Selfish, ignorant voters.
Also, nothing in your source proves that any of the policies that Friedman advocated for that were implemented caused growing income inequality.
So fuck you and your anti-intellectual, anti-academic bullshit.
