Free "markets" do, but what we have is a little bigger than a market nowadays. Social relations and reputation tended to follow you around back in the day, nowadays you can defraud millions of people before you get a reputation that might catch up to you for some people.

So yeah, we need regulation. but mostly because the concept of a market doesn't scale up perfectly from tens of millions of people to billions of people (due to the market now being more global than ever).

Took me a solid 10, most of which was spent figuring out exactly what it meant to be depressed and how it worked. Most of which ended up being not what I was told by psychologists and the like, or being something I wasn't told (because it more personal).
