Laissez Faire is a philosophy on politics. It is from a French phrase meaning "let them do (what they want to do)". It means that a government does not make laws about business.

It is the belief that unregulated competition represented the best path to progress. The business will be able to pay the employees very little money and worse because no one will stop them.
