This is why I am afraid of Tsai Ing-wen and the people in her political camp. If you are not free to trade, to buy from whomever and sell to whomever you wish, then you are not free. Period. There can be no "social" freedom without the corresponding "economic" freedom.
And Tsai Ing-wen's people seem to denigrate the free market as a matter of unthinking reflex.
