I wouldn't say so -- "free market" is basically a dogma that "natural forces" should be left free to play themselves out without human intervention, and whatever result this produces is by definition the right one. It turns out that this works about as well in economics as it does in epidemiology. "Socialism" is like deploying vaccines, antibiotics, sanitation, etc. to get a more desirable result (well, desirable to everyone but the germs).
