What is the best economic system?
Anarchism - free individualist economy not controlled by the state or any other authority and stateless societies based on non-hierarchical and voluntary associations opposing government authority
Anarcho-capitalism - political philosophy that advocates the elimination of the state in favour of individual sovereignty in a free market. In an anarcho-capitalist society, law enforcement, courts, and all other security services would be provided by privately funded competitors rather than through taxation, and money would be privately and competitively provided in an open market. According to anarcho-capitalists, personal and economic activities would be regulated by privately run law rather than through politics.No government should have the right to prevent another government from going into competition with it, or to require consumers of security to come exclusively to it for this commodity.""The monopoly of government is no better than any other. One does not govern well and, especially not cheaply, when one has no competition to fear, when the ruled are deprived of the right of freely choosing their rulers...The production of security inevitably becomes costly and bad when it is organized as a monopoly."
Anarcho-socialism - a system with public ownership of means of production and democratic control of all organizations, without any government authority or coercion. It is the largest school of thought in anarchism.Anarcho-socialism rejects private property, seeing it as a source of social inequality, and emphasises cooperation and mutual aid
Capitalist - economic system that is generally considered to favor private ownership of the means of production, creation of goods or services for profit or income by individuals or corporations, competitive markets, voluntary exchange, wage labor, capital accumulation, and personal finance
Communism - system operating under centrally planned economies and a state ownership of the means of production. Communism would presume the abolition of labour as a separate sphere of life one is coerced into for survival; the material means of subsistence would thus be said to be held in common.
Fascism - an economy where the government exerts strong directive influence, and effectively controls production and allocation of resources, apart from the nationalizations of some industries, fascist economies were based on private property and private initiative, but these were contingent upon service to the state
Georgism - an economic philosophy and ideology that holds that people own what they create, but that things found in nature, most importantly land, belong equally to all
Laissez-faire capitalism - an economic environment in which transactions between private parties are free from tariffs, government subsidies, and enforced monopolies, with only enough government regulations sufficient to protect property rights against theft and aggression. The phrase laissez-faire is French and literally means "let [them] do", but it broadly implies "let it be," "let them do as they will," or "leave it alone." Scholars generally believe a laissez-faire state or a completely free market has never existed.
Market socialism - an economic system based on public ownership or cooperative ownership of the means of production that retains monetary calculation and the market exchange.
Social capitalism - a system of open markets, unambiguously regulated by an activist state, and one in which the state intervenes to reduce the greater inequalities that competitive markets will inevitably generate. The essence of social capitalism is that markets work best and output is maximized through sound social management of the macroeconomy. Social capitalism posits that a strong social support network for the poor enhances capital output. By decreasing poverty, capital market participation is enlarged.
Socialism - based on some form of social ownership, which includes varieties of public ownership and independent cooperatives, over the means of production, wherein production is carried out to directly produce use-value, usually, but not always, coordinated through economic planning and a system of accounting based on calculation-in-kind or a direct measure of labor-time.
Syndicalism - economic system proposed as a replacement for capitalism and an alternative to state socialism, which uses federations of collectivised trade unions or industrial unions. It is a form of socialist economic corporatism that advocates interest aggregation of multiple non-competitive categorised units to negotiate and manage an economy
