In a pure command economic system, an individual person has little or possibly no influence over how the basic economic questions are answered. Nowadays, the only areas that still have a pure command economy are North Korea, Vietnam, and parts of China. Should these countries keep a pure command economic system? Or should the pure command economic system be taken away from these countries? The pure command economic must be taken away for three following reasons: It has no competition, no development, and no valued goods and services.

It causes the economy of countries go down and promotes the people into poverty. It should be taken away from the world, for it has no competition, no development, and no valued goods and services. I think that if the pure command economic system are removed from the countries that are using it, the people will get out poor and starving life and have comfortable and peace life.
