Caveat emptor is Latin for "let the buyer beware."

It is a conservative term that supports free enterprise rather than government regulation. It means that the terms of a trade or a contract are solely between the parties involved, and it is not the responsibity of a nanny state to intervene, in the alleged best interest of one party.
