Mixed capitalism

Mixed capitalism is an economic system based on a market economy with limited government involvement.

In mixed capitalism the government has two economic tools: the power to tax and the power to spend. By taxing individuals and businesses it acquires funds to provide essential public programs: defense, education, transportation, and social services. In turn the money spent for these services creates demand for the goods and services produced by businesses.
