Market Economies

by Wytifiah Clyde and Tyreke Billingsley

3 types of economies

  • command economy- is an economy in which the government is in charge and makes all economic decisions.
  • market economy- based on private ownership in which individuals control most companies and resources.
  • mixed economy- based on various combinations of market forces and government interventions


Economic freedom- 4.5; we're a mixed economy , so we make decisions based on what individuals and government want to see in the markets.

Economic equity- 3; people risk doing the right thing to get the voice out and persuade their products to get purchased.

Economic growth- 5; the amount of a product increases. The power that consumers have grows and puts consumers more in control.
