Planned economy.

Planned economy

Market abolitionist socialism replaces factor markets with direct calculation as the means to coordinate the activities of the various socially-owned economic enterprises that make up the economy.[4][5][6] More recent approaches to socialist planning and allocation have come from some economists and computer scientists proposing planning mechanisms based on advances in computer science and information technology.[7] Overview[edit] Government-business relations in Japan.

Government-business relations in Japan

There is debate among scholars on how to classify Japan's market economy and welfare state model.[1] Some argue that the focuses of Japan's government, businesses, and laborers are solely oriented towards increasing economic productivity.[2] This is considered the productivist or developmental welfare capitalism model.[2][1] Institutional features in Japan pointing towards this model include the cooperation between MITI and businesses in directing the Japanese economy towards high productivity goals.[3] Labor subordination is another aspect of this model that allows the Japanese government to focus solely on economic development rather than the development of social programs.[1] Attitudes toward government direction[edit]

Mothers' Pensions. Proponents of the original plan for mothers' pensions (also referred to as mothers' aid) intended to provide a universal subsidy to families with dependent children but without an adult male income. Using the model of military pensions, they argued that a mother deserved a government pension in exchange for her service to the state through child rearing. Child welfare reformers, women's clubs, and juvenile court judges supported pensions as a vast improvement over existing options that sent families to the poorhouse, forced mothers to give up their children, or turned children into wage earners. The Illinois state legislature passed the first statewide mothers' pension law in the United States in 1911. Only Kansas City and a few private charities scattered across the country had previously tried similar plans.
