The Big Book of Economic Systems

Postby Old Northwest » Fri Jan 04, 2019 11:23 am

Note: this is based on the Big Book of Capital Punishment.
Modes of Production are systems used by nations to produce different goods and services for its populace.

Different modes of production are characterized by varying modes of ownership, exchange, means of producing, and varying degrees of advancement in productive forces, i.e. different economic systems have different ways of making things and have different technologies.

Communism as a socio-political movement is described by communist and scientific socialist Karl Marx as the "real movement that abolishes the present state of things." Communist modes of production are marked by their lack of property, money, social classes, state, and commodity exchange.

Capitalism, by contrast, is a mode of production generally marked by private property, capital, markets, money, and commodity exchange. Commodities are products created for the purpose of exchange. Capitalist societies usually also have a class system of some form, although this is not necessarily a legal matter of the state and does not need to be rigidly enforced, e.g. social democracies attempt to limit class structure.

Feudalism is a mode of production characterized by rigid class structure of nobility and serf, and agrarian means of production. Feudalist societies do not utilize commodity exchange and money to the extent of capitalist societies generally.

Socialist societies are societies that may encompass any of the above modes of production but usually do not have private property, i.e. a market socialist society operates with markets and commodity exchange, but property is not privately owned.

This survey's purpose is to determine different nations' adoption of economic systems.

A wartime economic system with a capitalistic bureaucracy comparable to the Stalinist thermidorian reaction economy was in-place even in nations declared to be Communist, as in Vietnam and Communist China. When independence was achieved in November 13, 1992, slowly, land reforms were enforced to halt the capitalistic dog-eat-dog system of private ownership, but were largely ineffective on a national level, in comparison to the Soviet model. Despite this, the abolition of Capitalist labor relations was definitely imposed by each of State in the Federation. Acceleration of the fight against feudal labor relations and the beginning of dekulakization of public land were achieved at a steady pace during the Cultural Revolution of 1995.

D. PROTOCOL AND PROCEDURES

1. Is work done voluntarily or by force? Voluntarily.

1a. What are conditions like for forced labor (if applicable)?

2. How, if at all, are workers compensated for labor? Labor-Vouchers, which have monetary denominations, although are rid of surplus in purchasing local produce.

3. Do land owners (where applicable) decide on wages or compensation? No. These decisions are made on a Federal level by your regional Tripartite Wages Board, and then by the District-Soviet locally.

5. Is there any preference between agrarian or industrial labor? There is a preference to industrial labor, due to recent agricultural mechanization efforts.

A. GENERAL

1. Full nation name: The Republic of Borovine
2. Type of government: Parliamentary democracy
3. Which mode of production is used? Check all that apply:
[] Feudalism
[x] Capitalism
[x] Socialism
[] Communism
[] Other: Borovin has a predominantly socialist economy with substantial market mechanisms

4. Does private property exist? Yes. There is a substantial private sector (employing about 20% of the workforce) composed of nonprofits, worker and consumer cooperatives, and (the smallest share) for-profit capitalist-owned businesses.

5. Are commodities produced to be exchanged? In general, yes. The central business organization of the Borovine economy is the social firm, a corporation whose shares are socially owned and whose mission is to serve the public good, a mission that in many cases entails operating as a market actor, engaging in commodity production and exchange to make profits that are then transferred to social capital funds.

6. When was private property abolished (if applicable)? The Borovine economy has been predominantly socially owned for over eighty years, ever since the Socialist Party moved to socialize industry in response to economic crisis.

7. When was private property legalized/first utilized (if applicable)? We are not sure what this means. Private property in some form is ancient.

8. On average, how many people own property used for production? It would be difficult to provide a precise count. Borovine law does not strictly distinguish between personal property and property used for production, which, after all, will often involve hybrid cases (e.g., lawnmowers used to mow one's own lawn and also by one's teenager to mow other people's lawns for spending money). The predominant way the socialist character of the economy is preserved is through restrictions on hiring, high capital income taxation, and socialized credit.

B. PROPERTY

1. Which industries are privately owned? For the most part, publicly-owned firms and private firms coexist in industries, with social firms playing the dominant role in essentially all. In a few industries, such as health care and primary and secondary education, the government maintains a monopoly.

2. How do individuals go about buying property (if possible)? The same way they would buy anything else, with the important qualification that business loans are heavily restricted.

3. Is property owned by workers, capitalists, serfs, nobles, or other? We have no nobles or serfs. Most property is owned by the government. Some property is owned by worker or consumer cooperatives, or by private nonprofits. Some property is owned by individuals.

4. Can land be owned? Yes, though most of it is publicly owned.

5. Does the state have the ability to seize private property? Yes, though it is usually obligated to compensate the owner.

6. Can working-class people legally purchase property? Yes.

7. Can the serfdom legally purchase property? There are no serfs.

8. Can men own property? Yes.

9. Can women own property? Yes.

10. Can government officials own property? Yes.

11. Can foreigners own property? Yes.

C. SOCIAL STRUCTURE

1. Which socio-political movement dominates your mode of production? Check all that apply:
[] Liberalism
[] Monarchism
[] Fascism
[x] Socialism
[] Communism
[] None of the above

1d. For nations utilizing Socialism, which forms? Check all that apply:
[] Marxism
[] Marxism-Leninism (or variant)
[x] Market Socialism
[] Utopian Socialism
[] Religious Socialism
[] Other:

2. Can individuals exist in modes of living outside of the standard? It is not clear to us what this question means. People are free to live however they wish compliant with the law. The law heavily structures the economy, however, as in any society, and that shapes the manner in which people are realistically able to live.

D. PROTOCOL AND PROCEDURES

1. Is work done voluntarily or by force? With the exception of community service as punishment for crime, all work is done voluntarily.

1a. What are conditions like for forced labor (if applicable)? Community service is independently supervised by labor representatives and participants are guaranteed decent and dignified treatment. Abusing participants in community service programs is criminal and aggressively policed.

2. How, if at all, are workers compensated for labor? Workers are compensated with wages and benefits.

3. Do land owners (where applicable) decide on wages or compensation? Sectoral collective bargaining sets a wage floor.

5. Is there any preference between agrarian or industrial labor? Our concern is what best secures the overall prosperity and well-being of the public.

7. Are "essential industries" (e.g. firefighters, judiciary) public or private? Pretty much exclusively public.

8. Who is able to work? The minimum working age is 16. There is generally no other restriction.

9. Are there any legal barriers to work? Some kinds of work (e.g., being a doctor or a lawyer) are subject to professional licensing schemes, though we try to keep licensing barriers low in most fields.

10. Is work considered to be enjoyable? Some people enjoy their jobs. Others do not. We would prefer for as many people to enjoy them as possible, and that is one of the primary goals of the socialist economy.

11. Do workers enjoy being workers? Everyone is a worker.

12. Is owning property considered a sign of greatness (i.e. are property owners revered)? No. Greatness is about your social contribution, not what or how much you own.

13. Are property owners hated? No. We generally prefer not to hate people.

14. How are products distributed? Are they exchanged as commodities? Most consumer goods are sold at their market prices. The three major exceptions are education and health care (which are free or only accompanied by minor cost-sharing), and housing, which, if part of the dominant public housing sector, is heavily subsidized.

15. How does the state treat matters of production? Are political and productive matters considered separate? It's a complicated relationship that is somewhat dynamic and subject to political contestation. It is a general matter of political consensus that specific economic decisions by social firms should not be subject to political control; they are supposed to be free to exercise independent business judgment in the interest of efficiency. But overall economic goals and the broad missions given to the social capital funds that provide investment capital for the social firms are political matters. The exact line is disputed, with the more pro-market parties pushing for a sharper separation between politics and the economy and for a firmer reliance on market metrics like profitability, and the more left-wing parties pushing for greater direct democratic management of the economy in the interest of greater equality and public benefit.

16. What happens when someone dies from work? Their family is compensated by a public insurance program funded by fees on employers, which are calibrated and re-calibrated based on job risk. The family can also sue for wrongful death, though any recovery is reduced by the amount of compensation received from the public insurance program.

17. Does money exist, and if so, does it determine or affect social status? Money does exist. It inevitably affects social status to some degree, though we try to inculcate an egalitarian social culture.

E. PUBLIC OPINION

1. What percentage of citizens support these modes of production?
1a. Feudalism: 0% probably? We are not sure anyone has asked this question in a survey.
1b. Capitalism: 20-25%
1c. Socialism:65-70%
1d. Communism: 10-15%
1e. Other: 2%
2. What percentage of citizens do not support a specific system? 2%
3. Is there any sort of active resistance movement against your mode of production? Not much of one extra-legally. There are activists on both the left and the right who would like to see a change in their preferred direction.
