Laissez faire (let us do) is the economic theory of a true free market with no government intervention. Laissez faire modern press approximately translates into, "Do what you will" from French. A noted advocate of the laissez faire style of economy was Adam Smith, who pioneered the theory of modern capitalism, but as Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo, did not use the term.
