Free market economies have done more to raise people from poverty than any other system.
I don't think that this statement means anything. You are making what appears to be a statement of fact, but there is no way to back it up since you haven't provided any way to measure what a "free market economy" is. You gave me Hong Kong (I doubt if Hong Kong is anywhere near the top of "raising people from poverty (however that is measured)). Are we still including pre-colonial India and ancient Egypt?
If you define your term in a way that is measurable, then we can check to see if it is factually true. If not, than this is just a dogmatic slogan.
