  Planned economy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Centrally-planned economies, such as the economy of the former Soviet Union, are alternately called command economies, because what will be produced and in what quantities is "commanded" by the government; businesses themselves are not free to make their own production decisions.
Pre-modern economies (those existing before the industrial revolution) are more difficult to analyze by today's standards, but a number of them, particularly those of hydraulic empires, may be seen as having been centrally planned as well.
There is a Trotskyist theory of the permanent arms economy, put forward by Michael Kidron, which leads on from the contention that war and accompanying industrialisation is a continuing feature of capitalist states and that central planning and other features of the war economy are ever present.

 Gift economy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A gift economy is an economic system in which the prevalent mode of exchange is for goods and services to be given without explicit agreement upon a quid pro quo, or the concept of "a favor for a favor" in the Latin language.
A gift economy is sometimes referred to as a "sharing economy," although many economists reserve the term "sharing" for the use of a single resource by more than one consumer, such as a commons, a public library, or a shared car.
But the gift economy can also take hideous turns, as when a gift is given mainly to create an obligation, a matter often treated in myths of the hazards of accepting a gift in hell or from the fairies.

 Planned economy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although most economies today are market economies or mixed economies, planned economies exist in some countries such as Cuba and North Korea.
The term usually refers to centrally-planned economies but may also be used to refer to decentralized systems of planning such as participatory economics.
A palace economy may be considered as a subsistence economy augmented with elements of command economy.

 Palace economy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A palace economy is a system of economic organisation in which wealth flows out from a central source (the 'palace'), eventually reaching the common people, who have no other source of income.
The division of labour in such an economy leads to a leisured elite, a class of bureaucrats, and a class of subsistence farmers.
Recorded examples of palace economies include the Mycenaean and Minoan societies in ancient Greece, but many other pre-industrial civilizations also used this economic model.

Palaces of this period are known at Knossos, Mallia, Phaistos and Chania, all built around a central courtyard.
Palaces of this period continued on Crete, and are also found on mainland Greece at such places as Mycenae, Tiryns and Pylos.
Much smaller than the palaces on Crete, Tiryns is 76.5 by 65.6 yds (70 by 60 m), and Pylos is only 59 by 32.8 yds (54 by 30 m), which is about the same size as the central courtyard at Knossos.

 The Definitive Guide to Mixed economy XXXX   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The term mixed economy was coined to identify economic systems which stray from the ideals of either the free market, or various planned economies and "mix" with elements of each other.
As it is unlikely that an economy will contain a perfectly even mix, mixed economies are usually noted as being skewed either towards either private ownership or public ownership in varying degrees.
Social market economy is the economic policy of modern Germany that steers a middle path between socialism and liberalism and aims at maintaining a balance between a high rate of economic growth, low inflation, low levels of unemployment, good working conditions, public welfare and public services by using state intervention.

Palaces were also directly involved in the consumption functioning as redistributive centres as the central palaces and temples in the ancient Near East.
This is another example of the special economy seen through the tablets: not the everyday economy of common people, nor, at least directly, foreign trade, but the internal economy of the palace and possibly the economy of exchange among palaces.
Of course palaces, for similarities with those in Near East and for both archaeological and Linear B tablets evidence, appear to be the most probable central authority involved in exchanges, probably gift-exchanges.

 Capitalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the period between the late 15th century and the late 18th century, much of Europe underwent a thoroughgoing economic transformation associated with the rise of capitalism and the shift from the town or the village to the modern state as the center of the economy.
However, in more undeveloped economies, such as Prussia and Russia, with their much younger manufacturing bases, mercantilism continued to find favor after other states had turned to newer doctrines.
During the postwar boom, a broad array of new analytical tools in the social sciences were developed to explain the social and economic trends of the period, including the concepts of post-industrial society and welfare statism.

The values of classical political economy are strongly associated with the classical liberal doctrine of minimal government intervention in the economy.
During the postwar boom, a broad array of new analytical tools in the social sciences were developed to explain the social and economic trends of the period, including the concepts of post-industrial society and welfare statism (Burnham).
However, in all existing modern economies, the state conducts some degree of centralized economic planning (using such tools as allowing the country's central bank to set base interest rates), ostensibly as an attempt to improve efficiency, attenuate cyclical volatility, and further particular social goals.

A true Belle Époque palace, it was conceived as a luxury hotel for European visitors; the businessman/socialite who opened it in 1932 brought the original blueprints from Paris.
It was an unusual investment to make at the time, since most other hotels in the area have had to lower their rates in recent years.
In early 2002, the country's economy collapsed when Argentina ceased pegging its currency to the dollar—the result of the government's inability to meet massive public debt payments, which dampened foreign investment, caused bank accounts to be frozen, and led to riots.

 Martin MLA 2005
The People's Palace, opened in the heart of London's East End in 1887, was an institution that was informed—as this description from its first Handbook amply demonstrates—by a faith in culture as an instrument of social cohesion and reconciliation.
Imagined by its middle class adherents as a cultural solution to the geo-political gulf between rich and poor London, the Palace promised a new approach to social dislocation, whereby the urban entertainments and the sociability of the fashionable West was to be imported into the “joyless city” in the East.
Essentially, the People's Palace was conceived as playing a far wider role for the benefit of the whole of its surrounding community, in contrast to, on the one hand, the dour Polytechnic model, and on the other, the more superficial pleasures of the Crystal Palace.

 Planned economy - Article from FactBug.org - the fast Wikipedia mirror site
A planned economy is an economic system in which economic decisions are made by centralized planners who determine what sorts of goods and services to produce and how they are to be priced and allocated, and may include state ownership of the means of production.
To stress the centralized character of planned economies and to contrast the term with decentralized planning in a market economy, a more specific term, centrally planned economy, is also used.
Nevertheless, a planned economy should not be seen as a necessary element of socialism.

Despite high standards of literacy, modernization and expansion of the fishing industry, and development of an oil industry (especially along the coast of Venezuela near Lake Maracaibo), most Caribbean nations remain overly reliant on tourism and a few exports (such as bauxite, sugar, and bananas) and depend heavily on imported food and fuel.
Recent efforts to improve and diversify the fragile economy of the region include the founding of the Organization Of Eastern Caribbean States in 1981 and the launching of the Caribbean Basin Initative in 1983.
For a time in the mid-1980s, reduced world demand for bauxite hurt Jamaica; political unrest and a 1988 hurricane also hurt the economy.
