What is mixed economy
-- farhana sharmin (firstname.lastname@example.org), April 20, 2001.
MIXED ECONOMY IS A TERM USED TO DESCRIBE AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM, WHERE SOME IMPORTANT PRODUCTION IS UNDERTAKEN BY THE STATE, DIRECTLY OR THROUGH ITS NATIONALISED INDUSTRIES, AND SOME IS LEFT FOR PRIVATE ENTERPRISE. IT IS ALSO DEFINED AS "AN ECONOMY CONTAINING THE CHARACTERISTICS OF BOTH CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM, THAT IS, A COMBINATION OF PRIVATE AND PUBLIC OWNERSHIP OF THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION, WITH SOME MEASURE OF CONTROL BY THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT". IT IS A TYPE OF ECONOMY IN WHICH PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTORS CO-EXIST AND TRY TO RETAIN THE ADVANTAGES OF CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM WHILE TRYING TO ELIMINATE THE EVILS OF BOTH THE SYSTEMS.

Mixed economy is mixture of both command and market economies.

Mixed economy is a system where the government has some control over the production of goods and services in the economy. An example of a mixed economy country is Canada. In Canada teh government places a priority on all parts of economy, such as Growth, Efficiency, Security, Stability, Equality, and Freedom. I hope this has helped you.

A "mixed" economy is a mix between socialism and capitalism. It is a hodgepodge of freedoms and regulations, constantly changing because of the lack of principles involved. A mixed-economy is a sign of intellectual chaos. It is the attempt to gain the advantages of freedom without government having to give up its power. A mixed-economy is always in flux. The regulations never produce positive results, because they always force people to act against their own interests. When a particular policy fails, it is propped up by other regulations in the hopes that more control will produce better results. Sometimes the results are so destructive they must either be removed, or the people must be violently oppressed to make them accept it. It is an economy that combines elements of capitalism and socialism, mixing some individual ownership and regulation. Some capitalist countries, France, for example, employ what is often called state capitalism. In this form of a mixed economy, the state becomes a major shareholder in private enterprises. An alternative, employed in Great Britain (more in the past than now), is for the state to own some industries while leaving others in private hands. Australia is a mixed economy, with major state-owned enterprises in communications, transport, banking, energy generation and health services, as well as privately owned enterprises in the same areas. In common with capitalist economies such as the UK and New Zealand, Australian governments are reducing these activities by privatising state-operated businesses. Other examples are seen in eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, where newly independent states have embraced the principles of private enterprise. China, too, provides a striking illustration of the transition to a mixed economy. In economics and politics, a mixed economy is an economy which combines regulated free market capitalism and a limited number of socialist institutions and State ownership of some sectors of the economy such as • social security, • environmental regulation, • labor regulation, • product safety regulation, • progressive taxation and • public education. Most democratic countries. including the United States, have mixed economies.

Somewhere between the complete laissez-faire capitalism of the market economy and the strict central controls of the command economy lie the territories of the mixed economies. In practice, every economy in the world is some form of a mixed economy, but there are vast differences between them in terms of how much of each economic theory they support. Generally, however, mixed economies will have areas that are public (closest in principle to the command economy) and areas that are private (most similar to a market economy).

In a market economy the price mechanism determines the economic decisions made by society. In a Market economy the government Regulates industrial behavior, provides goods that the whole community need, provides goods that the free market wouldn’t, redistributes income and is a stabilizer of economic activity

In the Mixed Economic system, botht the government and the private sector particpate in making the decisions regarding what is to be produced, how to produce and for whom to produce. The society recognizes the important tole of the government in the provision of certain goods and services that are large-scale in nature, for example eductaion and health, road construction and maintenance, social wellfare, among others and accepts input. The government undertakes these responsibilities as the more efficient provider of such services. However the problem with government is where too draw the line between ownership and control of certain resources and when to give the private sector control over things.
-- Giston Eccles (email@example.com), October 24, 2004.
“An economic system is the way a society sets about allocating which goods to produce and in which quantities. Different countries have different methods of tackling the economic problem.”
The basic economic problem is in establishing effective use of resources. We live in a world that has ever growing consumption demands and ever decreasing resources.
There are three main types of economy.
A market or capitalist economy is where resources are allocated by prices without government intervention. The USA and Hong Kong are new examples of market economies where firms decide the type and quantity of goods to be made in response to consumers. An increase in the price of one good encourages producers to switch resources into the production of that commodity. Consumers decide the type and quantity of goods to be bought. A decrease in the price of one good encourages consumers to switch to buying that commodity. People on high incomes are able to buy more goods and services than are the less well off. In a command-planned or socialist economy the government owns most resources and decides on the type and quantity of a good to be made. The USSR and North Korea are examples of command economies. The government sets output targets for each district and factory and allocates the necessary resources. Incomes are often more evenly spread out than in other types of economy.
In a mixed economy privately owned firms generally produce goods while the government organises the manufacture of essential goods and services such as education and health care. The United Kingdom is an example of a mixed economy. you need to understand all types of economies if you are going to write a report on the mixed economy. You could also consider looking at transitional economies.

Mixed Economies Public and Private Sectors! Somewhere between the complete laissez-faire capitalism of the market economy and the strict central controls of the command economy lie the territories of the mixed economies. In practice, every economy in the world is some form of a mixed economy, but there are vast differences between them in terms of how much of each economic theory they support. Generally, however, mixed economies will have areas that are public (closest in principle to the command economy) and areas that are private (most similar to a market economy).
Private Sector These are areas of a nation's economy that are left to the self- regulating devices of the market economy. If the government is involved in this sector at all, it is only to function as a referee (to ensure fair competition between all competitors). In Canada, many areas of the economy are within the private sector. A quick trip to the mall will expose us to competition, profit motive, entrepreneurs, privately owned land, labor and capital, and the laws of supply and demand.
Public Sector These are areas of a nation's economy deemed too important or not profitable enough to be left to the private sector. Governments in mixed economies will get involved in the production of some goods or services in order to guarantee essential services to all citizens or to try and encourage private interest in the economy. In Canada, services like public transportation and postal service are examples of areas deemed too important to all citizens to leave to the instabilities of the marketplace. Recently, in a wave of privatizations (selling public sector companies to private owners), services like telephone companies, liquor stores and registry services have been taken from the public sector and placed in the private sector.

it's shit... no jus kiddin>>>
there's 4 types of economic systems - traditional, market, mixed and command. Traditional is making decisions about the economy based on what was always done in the pas. ex. Aboringinals in Canada
Market is the industries and companies making decisions on the economy and influencing what happens. ex. Singapore
Command is having the government make decisions on the economy. The power is in the central authority. ex. North Korea
Mixed is having both the Market and Command act together to make a decision on the economy. ex. Canada
Hope my lil definations and examples helped. Pass it on.... lol Cya!!! :) - Annie

What? This site is crazy, but I have read pretty much the same thing on a market economy that I have found at other sites. So, if you live in the United States, then you know what a market economy is, because we live in it. Look around at businesses and how the government has to pass certain laws to restrict businesses from harming or providing harmful services or goods to consumers, just one example. A mixed economy is a mixture of government owned and non-government ownership of businesses in a country, 1/2 and 1/2. If you think about it, though, the United States, sort of, has a mixed economy, as well. We have the post offices, libraries, military offices, etc, that are owned by the government. Some of you might think that the "military offices" is wrong, but I see that the military does business with other nations and/or countries, just as well as, the individually-owned businesses do with each other and overseas corporations.
