that socialism is not bad; only a few countries are still communism like North Korea which has a low economic increment speed. Different systems have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it is necessary for the government to figure out which one is suitable for their countries.
“Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of the means of production and the creation of goods or services for profit. Competitive markets, wage labor, capital accumulation, voluntary exchange, and personal finance are also considered capitalistic (Wikipedia).” Capitalism can greatly promote economic development, this is the main feature of capitalism.

When I look around and see the general direction the quality of “living” is going I find myself constantly asking what the f*ck is happening here? From what I have come to understand is that the economic system that has been set up is set up in such a way to help the few that rest towards the top of the proverbial pyramid maintain a level of wealth; all the while ensuring those in the middle and at bottom struggle to stave off bankruptcy and poverty. Sadly the system affects more than just financials, evidence of this can be found virtually anywhere from the supermarket to the car dealership. The quality of the products that are being produced now-a-days is crap and becoming crappier which

And in contrast to Adam Smith, Michael Jacobs (1991) gives us an insight into how markets can be positive and negative. The reason why free markets are not a beneficial economic system is because of the full use of resources and lack of regulation, although they are good for markets such as Gross Domestic

In this paper I will be discussing and explain the two types of flows and how they affect the business world. By having this valuable information, consumers will now be aware of how their money is affecting the economic system in a certain way.
A closed system is an economic system model that counts only domestic exchanges but not the foreign agents . This means that in a closed system, the money is built up inside a circular flow. In a closed system, there aren’t any leaks because there aren’t any foreign agents, governments, investments, or system of savings. Also there

When dealing with such crisis of an epic proportion for example a hurricane, flood, blizzard, and or forest fire, the economic system that should be chose is critical.

Main reason for choosing socialism is that it discloses about the relationship between the four things, namely, human fellowship, social system, common ownership and finally the service of every citizen to each other.

Combined heat and power (CHP) can offer a variety of economic benefits for large energy users. The economic benefits of CHP can include:
* Reduced energy costs: The high efficiency of CHP technology can result in energy savings when compared to conventional, separately purchased power and onsite thermal energy systems. To determine if CHP is likely to offer a compelling return on investment at a particular site, the costs of the CHP system (capital, fuel, and maintenance) should be compared to the costs of purchased power and thermal energy (hot water, steam, or chilled water) that would otherwise be needed for the site.

Economic Systems: GREENLAND vs. IRAN
An economic system is a system of production, consumption, and distribution of goods and services. An economic system of a country is defined by its society, government, and who decides who gets what. A major factor in an economic system of a country is its type of government. Greenland, having a parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarchy, highly depends on imports and human capital from the Kingdom of Denmark. In a theocratic system of government, such that of Iran, the government defers not to civil development of law, but to an interpretation of the will of God as set out in religious scripture and authorities.

The Meiji government during the 1880's created both an institutional
and constitution structure that allowed Japan in the coming decades to be a

reinforced stability and economic modernization in Japan were the creation of a
national public education system and the ratification of the Meiji constitution.
Both these aided in stability and thus economic growth.
The creation of a national education system aided in creating stability

Introduction: The origin and development on theory
As early as the 17th century, the French term "entreprendre "appeared in economics, which evolved into "entrepreneur" as commonly used (Dees,1998). The concept of entrepreneur keeps on developing and varies with the development of socio-economics. Richard Cantillon published his in 1775 “Essay on the Nature of Trade in General" (Murphy,1986). Since then, entrepreneurship was given a definition in the perspective of behavior, including decision-making, sound judgment, supervision of

is associated with faster (not slower) economic growth in
the current and next few quarters. However, these correlations are relatively small, suggesting that the relationship
is rather weak. Again, it would be incorrect to infer a
causal relationship here, but these correlations suggest that
any possible negative effect of higher saving rates on
short-run economic growth has been consistently offset by
the positive effect of other factors. Hence, a simple analysis of these data does not support the view that the recent

Argentina fiscal policy could have been more sustainable if the convertibility regime had not been placed.
Argentina should have avoided the economic policies that combine a fixed exchange rate, external over-borrowing and fiscal laws at same time. During the economic boom, the government should be focused in structural reforms and tightened fiscal policy in order to promote or improve the macroeconomic stability. Other point is that the country was depending too much on foreign direct
