The Swiss economy is set to grow significantly more than previously thought, new figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development indicate.
However, growth will remain relatively vigorous, sustained by business investment and private consumption, which is likely to be boosted by dynamic job creation, while the economy's competitiveness will also stimulate exports, the report said.
Recent economic results, though encouraging, must not lead to complacency: potential growth needs to be strengthened, which requires the pursuit of reforms to stimulate competition and boost productivity, the OECD said.

 Overview of Economics—Getting Organized: Command, Market, and Mixed Economies
In a command economy, also known as a planned economy, the government largely determines what is produced and in what amounts.
In a mixed economy both market forces and government decisions determine which goods and services are produced and how they are distributed.
However, the government's influence in the economy stems from the amount of money (raised in the form of taxes and borrowings from the private sector) that it spends and, through various forms of welfare, redistributes.

 Project Renaissance, Mixed Economy
In command economies, which are less responsive to or even unresponsive to changing wants and needs, unwanted goods pile up; providers of unwanted services go through the motions with their efforts wasted; all the while actual and even vital wants and needs go into shortage or are unmet altogether.
What makes a market economy "good," far more efficient than government command could ever be at immediately making the detailed adjustments of a million-and-one changing conditions which keep most people and resources usefully engaged at their best or near-best uses, is the Directory service provided by freely changing prices and wages.
