Although having the highest levels of investment, they still had some of the lowest returns. This was because of the absence of market signals and a lack of accountability. The free market had many defects, the most important was that it couldn't send signals. If you try selling shoes and no one buys them, this is the signal that the market sends you so that you should switch to something else. This signal is not perfect but most of the time and cases it works, but, the problem with Communism is that it had put an end to the market's ability to signal.
Accepting When You Are Wrong In Nick Flynn’s memoir, Another Bullshit Night In Suck City, the narrator, Nick, and his father, Jonathan have developed a negligent relationship among each other. Nick has many encounters with his father, where he could have approached him in order to reconnect the father son bond but he does not. However, Nick does feel that not only is his father lost but he is as well. “Some part of me knew he would show up, that if I stood in one place long enough he would find me, like you’re taught to do when you are lost. But they never taught us what to do if both of you are lost, and both of you end up in the same place, waiting.” (Flynn 24) Nick chose to remain focused on how his father was not there for him growing up, and not take advantage of the times that he was right in front of him.
A free market system only hurts the economy, which is why the U.S is a mixed market economy. A mixed market economy is beneficial to consumers due to the fact there is government regulatory oversight of goods, and there is competition for goods. This type of economy means that companies cannot become monopolies and control prices of certain goods. However, this is not the case for pharmaceutical industries because there is little to none government intervention occurring. The lack of government oversight means that pharmacies that only develop specialized medicines have complete control of the price due to the fact they are the only ones able to reproduce the product.
A free market competition is better than a monopolistic competition because there is little constraint for people to enter or start a business in the market and consumers are able to set the price based on the demand vs. supply concept. A clear
Though the market is not entirely free, it is occasionally limited by government intervention. This, however, is normally to promote competition or encourage or dampen demand. In theory, a market economy’s base is on the cornerstones of the principles of supply and demand. In this way, the market is meant to respond to changes in demand for particular goods and services.
A free market economy will be most beneficial for the following reasons; limited government, freedom of choice, and the increased quality of production. The goods and services produced will be the ones most needed, this will depend on the popularity and demand for these products. Overall this will help producers focus on providing certain goods and services thus eliminating ones that are unnecessary and using valuable resources. A free market economy means limited government involvement and the freedom of choice. This allows producers to study the demand and decide what will sell and generate the most income instead of waiting for the government to tell them what to make.
Mixed economy has two main focused which are social welfare and government interference in economic activities. There are some differences between capitalism and mixed economies. The difference between the capitalism and mixed economies can be seen through private property. Under the system of capitalism, individuals have the freedom to make own choices and own decision how to use the factors of production and private property in carrying out economic activities. Although the government cannot intervene in all economic activities, but the government is
Using Kimberly Amadeo’s words, “ a market economy functions through competition”. Competition has its own advantages which include but not limited to production of goods and services in a more efficient way to maximize profits, rewarding of innovation, improved quality of goods and services being offered and also accumulation of capital. The demerits include disadvantaging the less privileged in society who are naturally unable to compete. Examples of the underprivileged include the elderly, children, and mentally or physically challenged people and the caretakers of such people are also disadvantaged because their energies and skills are taken up with caretaking, not competing. In a nutshell, free market favors those who are good at
Advantage and disadvantage The advantage of the mixed market system is that China has open is market towards foreign business therefore creating job opportunities for their people by doing so it has improve their society and the style of living. Besides that, those citizen who works for the foreign companies will incur a percentage of taxation. This taxation is then uses by the government to develop the country by improving their infrastructure such as roads, telecommunications, and public transportation. Apart from that, China is now the 2nd largest economy in world (Jerry w; 2011), (Nation Master; 2003-2014). The disadvantage that China will face with this mixed market system is that many hundreds of millions of people still remain poor because most of whom live in more isolated interior regions of country away from prosperous coast; therefore creating a gap between rich and poor.
