Chartist Movement
CHARTISM was a working-class movement for political reform in Britain that existed from 1838 to 1857. It took its name from the People's Charter of 1838 and was a national protest movement, with particular strongholds of support in Northern England , the East Midlands , the Staffordshire Potteries , the Black Country , and the South Wales Valleys . Support for the movement was at its highest in 1839, 1842, and 1848, when petitions signed by millions of working people were presented to the House of Commons . The strategy employed was to use the scale of support which these petitions and the accompanying mass meetings demonstrated to put pressure on politicians to concede manhood suffrage . Chartism thus relied on constitutional methods to secure its aims, though there were some who became involved in insurrectionary activities, notably in south Wales and in Yorkshire

Newspaper Circulation
A newspaper 's CIRCULATION is the number of copies it distributes on an average day. Circulation is one of the principal factors used to set advertising rates. Circulation is not always the same as copies sold, often called PAID CIRCULATION, since some newspapers are distributed without cost to the reader. Readership figures are usually higher than circulation figures because of the assumption that a typical copy of the newspaper is read by more than one person. In many countries, circulations are audited by independent bodies such as the Audit

Free Market
One view is that a FREE MARKET is a system in which the prices for goods and services are determined by the open market and consumers , in which the laws and forces of supply and demand are free from any intervention by a government , price-setting monopoly, or other authority. Another view considers systems with significant market power , inequality of bargaining power , or information asymmetry to be less than free. It is a result of recognizing a need, followed by the need being met. Some believe a free market contrasts with a regulated market , in which a government intervenes in supply and demand through various methods such as tariffs used to restrict trade and protect the economy. Prices for goods and services are set freely by the forces of supply and demand and are allowed to reach their point of equilibrium without intervention by government policy
