  Historical Capitalism vs. The Free Market
Röpke's distinction between the principle of a capitalist or market economy and the historical forms in which capitalism has manifested itself in various times is as important now in the post-Soviet socialist era of the 1990s as when he presented his argument during the zenith of Nazi socialism in the 1940s.

Socialist market economy with Chinese characteristics is the official term for the economy of the People's Republic of China.
