People have the freedom to own, choose, compete and earn a living but with little or no government help. They have the freedom to own, choose, compete and earn a living. Socialism is a mixed market economic system. The basic means of production is managed and owned by the government, with the public owning and operating many businesses. Cooperation is stressed over competition, goals are high standard of living and economic security and high taxes provide free health care and education.
It is a market where production is made private and is operated for profit. In capitalist market, for-profit economy, the government has little control over country’s market and people are able to do what they want with their own profit. Through capitalism we are offered the most freedom and fairness then any other markets can offer us. Everyone has the right to make his or her own choices. For example we can own land, goods, homes, businesses and go into whatever profession we are pleased.
While capitalism is more rich get richer poor get poorer, socialism distributes wealth evenly to those both those that work and do not work to acquire wealth. Socialism is said to eliminate poverty among the society, and capitalism eliminates poverty among the few individuals that invest in private property. Capitalism promotes responsibility and a chance for individuals to establish a better future, and socialism promotes corruption among the bureaucrats in the government in charge of these industries.
They view things very differently in who should runs the economy. Most economies have ideas from both systems, but tend to be more of one than the other. Capitalism is based on private or corporate ownership of, production and distribution of goods. It has existed to some extent in all civilizations but was written about formally by Adam Smith in his book "The Wealth of Nations" in 1776. Capitalists favor free enterprise which means the government does not interfere in the economy - that supply and demand will make the economy run efficiently and meet the people 's needs.
Capitalism is an economic system in which the production and distribution are privately owned, the government involvement is minimal,and there is free enterprise. In Capitalism, the means of production are privately owned and operated for profit in a competitive market. Also the economic investment, ownership and profits are all owned by individuals. Under capitalism the state is separated from the economy, which means that the government has no role in business. In other words, everyone works for themselves.
Market Failure Causes In analysis of market failure, a distinction should be drawn between partial and complete market failures. While the later implies a functional market with ineffective function the former describes a complete non-functional market with inability to supply the market with required goods o... ... middle of paper ... ...nment intervention in market economies always works effectively.

However, it should be noted that no theory cannot be perfect without any drawback. New growth theory does not only explain how knowledge can transform to other firms or agents, and it is not also clear the characteristics of knowledge. Indeed, entrepreneurship cannot be a panacea for economic development, even though it can bring various advantages to regional economies. As Baumol (1993) asserts, entrepreneurship is not a synonym for virtuousness. Hence, much effort to increase the explanatory power of theory with corroborative data and methodologies are necessary for better understanding about economic development.
Capitalism is about the whole concept of free market, but sometimes the free market isn’t the best choices in the long run. Because capitalism has inequalities, it’s an inhuman system, and there’s competition. People might say, and what’s wrong with a little competition? I am not saying that competition is wrong, because it’s not. But sometimes people take it too far and instead of having a friendly competition it turns out to be a war.
The state owns everything for the benefit of the community. The government owns most of the means of production. This economy does not have much incentive to cut cost because there is no competition. Since the government has ownership of businesses, there isn’t much unemployment because the state would provide jobs even if they aren’t essential or beneficial. Socialism allows for the total state ownership of business, so the government also determines prices.
Economists often talk about letting the economy work through the mechanism of the free market versus government control and regulation. Some believe that if the market is allowed to "do its thing" unprohibited and without government interference, then resources will be allocated efficiently, equilibrium will be found, and so on… However, this is not always possible. Of course, government control is not perfect either. Thus, it would seem that at times the market may be more appropriate than the government; other times the government may be needed because the market is not able to function properly; and other times a combination of the two working in unison may provide the best and most effective and efficient answers. The market may fail if there is, for example, "imperfect market structure" and thus the presence of "monopoly power."
