    Well, I believe that there is no such thing as a perfect society or a perfect economic or other social concept.

    I firmly reject every form of utopia and therefor have to say that there is no such thing as a perfect economic system.

    What I prefer is a representative body that examines failures and pros out of various different policies and constantly keeps learning, rather than trying to find some dubious "perfect system".

    Re: Which economic system is the best to you?

    Why do all these types of polls lack any and all nuance? There are basically 2 purely capitalist economies on earth, Hong Kong and Singapore, and even in Hong Kong there are some safety nets. Every large developed economy on earth is a mixed market economy. There are those that have a lot of state intervention such as China and there are those that have much less such as the United States, Australia, and Canada, but aside from a couple of city states, its all mixed market economies. Thus why is a mixed market economy not an option?

    There are also hardly any socialist economies on earth outside of Scandinavia, and at this point there are only 2 communist economies left that I can think of.

    What does that even mean? They're contradistinctive.

    How would you reconcile Capitalism's pursuit of profit and competition with Communism's egalitarian focus on human need?

    I would reconcile it by pointing out you mislabeled both.

    This is probably the most ridiculous statement ever made.

    The way every mixed market economy on earth has. You have a capitalist system with market regulation, worker protections, environmental protections, and some sort of a safety net.
