A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on economy, liberty, freedom, and cooperation

The market economy is the social system of the division of labor under private ownership of the means of production. Everybody acts on his own behalf; but everybodys actions aim at the satisfaction of other peoples needs as well as at the satisfaction of his own. Everybody in acting serves his fellow citizens.

Ludwig von Mises
