  •  We don't often enough use the term mixed economy (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    which accurately describes what we & almost every nation employs: a capitalist private sector market economy mixed with a socialist public sector.  Each does something well; both are necessary; neither can really do what it's not supposed to do.   The discussion/argument is about the big grey area of overlap where it isn't very clear that a particular task/good/service fits into one or the other.  

    Sadly, the wealthy powers that be are no longer interested (presuming that they were interested in the mid 1900s; that's debatable) in a sincere effort to find out what works best, & to support that.   They're instead trying to have it all.
