Classical liberalism states that the government should take control of an institution in order to ensure that it continues to be of service to the people, free of charge. These regional disparities hampered the process of nation- building. The Industrial Revolution transformed British society in a fundamental manner.

Some historians of economic thought, in particular, Sraffian economists, [14] [15] see the classical theory of prices as determined from three givens: The level of outputs at the level of Smith's "effectual demand", technology, and wages.

This is now known as a steady-state economy.

In order to adjudicate the merits of the Ricardo and Smith litigants, I ought first to sketch a tolerably accurate, modern account of the incidence process. With property rights to land and capital held by individuals, the national income is divided up between labourers, landlords, and capitalists in the form of wagesrentand interest or profits.

Democracy is also involved with several contemporary issues. Classical political economy is popularly associated with the idea that free markets can regulate themselves. Its more specific meaning in a Marxist context relates to the corpus of work of certain writers who dealt with the distribution and accumulation of economic surplus, and the attendant problems of determination of prices, wages, employment and the efficacy or otherwise of political arrangements to promote accumulation.

Psychology is the fulcrum on which political economy exerts its force in studying decision making not only in pricesbut as the field of study whose assumptions model political economy.

These regional disparities hampered the process of nation- building. The American democracy sets the standard around the world for liberal democracies, but transitions across for other countries across the world toward a liberal democracy is often difficult and with poor decision making, close to impossible.

Like in many political parties, democracy faces several political issues throughout time.

Within the framework of hills and mountains represented by the Indo-Iranian borderlands on the west, the Indo-Myanmar borderlands in the east, and the Himalayas to the north, the subcontinent may in broadest terms be divided into two major divisions: in the north, the basins of the Indus and Ganges Ganga rivers the Indo-Gangetic Plain and, to the south, the block of Archean rocks that forms the Deccan plateau region.

This agitation was one of the stimulants for intellectual unrest and spread of national consciousness during the moderate phase of freedom struggle —the seed-time of national movement.Socialism supports government employment programs, universal health care, and generous payments to the unemployed or disabled.
