Referee Report for the paper titled “The Politics of Market Socialism” by Andrei Shleifer and Robert W. Vishny Summary : This paper provides an in-depth analysis of one of the rarely discussed drawbacks of market socialism - the assumption that a democratic socialist government pursues efficiency. It argues that : Even if a government is democratic, it will not place sufficient weight on economic efficiency, irrespective of whether it is socialist or capitalist If a government ends up pursuing its ‘political’ objectives, the damage will be greater under socialism than capitalism The former argument is modelled in a two fold manner. First, that socialist dictators cause more economic inefficiency than capitalist dictators due to an added burden of political insecurity;

Socialism is a term applied to an economic system in which property is held in common and not individually and relationships are governed by a political hierarchy. Common ownership doesn't mean decisions are made collectively, however. Instead, individuals in positions of authority make decisions in the name of the collective group. A primary goal of socialism is social equality and a distribution of wealth based on one's contribution to society and an economic arrangement that would serve the interests of society as a whole. Socialism as we know it today, most commonly refers to "market socialism" which involves individual market exchanges organized by collective planning.
