The Macroeconomics “Keynesians” - Judee, Tiffany, Corey, Michelle and Lisa

Socialism is an organization that advocates ownership and control of industry, capital, land, factories, and other property used to produce goods and services by the community as a whole.

1.) Socialists believe that the government is for the best interest of society and want to see that property benefits many instead of only a few. They are of the public sector. 2.) Socialism is based on the idea of achieving social justice through the means of public ownership of productive property. 3.) Socialism arose in the 18th century as a reaction associated with the industrial revolution.

Rational Expectation Capitalism is an econonmic system in which private individuals and business firms carry on the production and exchange of goods and services, through a complete network of prices and markets. Also known for free enterprise, capitalism lets busineses run themselves with little or no government control. The person who laid out the structure of capitalism is Adam Smith, who started the basis in his book "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of Wealth". He said that businesses didn't need to be run by governments because they run themselves by competetion between each other. This theory is known as the "invisible hand".
