Which type of economy is best?
This is, of course, a matter of opinion. My own opinion is that a mixed economy is the best economic system. Specifically, I would argue that the best economy is one that is based mainly on market principles but which has some amount of government involvement. Market economies are, in general, a good thing.
What is an example of a market economy?
Example. The United States is the best example of market economies where the free flow of goods and services facilitates and protects both producers and consumers. First, there is no governmental control, and the exchange of goods and services is determined by the market mechanisms of demand and supply.
