ABSTRACT
The author discusses how the natural law applies to the freedom and equality in market exchange. He states that natural law is essential to the well-being of every individual and it helps them interact well with other people for the common good. He also explains the natural law justification for a free enterprise and the natural law understanding of the moral norm that governs it. He adds that both freedom and equality are important to the natural law aspect of the market.
