The Four Types of Economies Traditional economy Command economy Market economy Mixed
Traditional Economy Is an economic system in which most ecnomic decisions are based on customs or the habit of how such decisions were made in the past. It is strongly connected to subsistence farming and is found in countries that are underdeveloped.
Command Economy Resources are allocated by the government or other central authority. An economy where supply and price are regulated by the government rather than market force.
Market Economy An economic system in which the economic decisions and the pricing of goods and services are guided solely by the interactions of a country’s citizens and businesses and there is little government interventions or central planning. “Laissez- faire” French meaning “hand's off”
