People, Markets and Democracy

Being pro-people is not the same as being anti-market, but, it is definitely not being 'pro-market'. It is, rather, for markets where people matter. Thus, like a democratic government, markets should be by the people, for the people and of the people.
The irony is that peoples representatives in a democratic set-up are being 'market-friendly' so that they can buy people, be far from them and off their radder. Be forewarned, that if people become irrelevant then it is neither good for democracy nor for markets.
