Trade and commerce is the lifeblood of wealth creation. Without specialisation and exchange, we would all starve. You have oranges, I have apples. Individually we are bored, together we have a fruit salad.
For specialisation, exchange and commerce to work its magic, firstly we need some common ground: a market. Now, mention that word to a Socialist, and he starts to froth and foam at the mouth. The evil of markets, how the market forces this and exploits that, blah blah.
A good opening to a great speech. Discusses the problem concerning the giant elephant in the room–we have no free market in spite of the appeals to it’s sacrosanct position in the political pantheon (my words, not the speech).
