除了市场经济，还有其他切实可行的选择吗?市场经济是任何生产和分配形式都将以市场供求为基础的经济。一个自由的价格体系将会出现，这将有助于确定价格，它是基于这个自由的价格体系和需求和供应，任何市场运动将会发生。现在，虽然人们对市场经济的看法一直在改变，但要成为市场经济的替代品将是困难的。因为市场经济是建立在资本主义基础上的，而且这是世界企业贸易和工作的一种根深蒂固的结构，所以可能不可能接受另一种结构(Clements & Selvanathan, 1994)。作为非市场经济的一个例子，中国的经济可以考虑。中国经济实际上被称为混合经济。
一个实际的非市场经济必须能够有一个明确的行政权力，而不依赖于成本的市场原则(Nee, 1992)。现有的市场经济确保了效率的提高，商业组织通过降低成本、确保员工更加努力工作、寻找新的市场来实现这一点，并在全球和其他地方扩展业务。在这样的背景下，世界各地不同的市场相互联系，成为一个全球市场。这是许多商业组织现在已经习惯的情况(Podkaminer, 2012)。对于他们来说，要适应一种不同形式的经济事业，就意味着要从核心重新制定他们的战略。因此，即使可以设想出替代方案，它们也可能无法实际实施。
Is there a practical alternative to the market economy?A market economy is one that any form of production and distribution will be based on market supply and demand. A free price system will be present that will be helpful in fixing the prices and it is based on this free price system and demand and supply that any market movement will take place. Now although people keep changing their mind about the market economy, it will be difficult to be an alternative to market economy. Because market economy is well established with its roots in capitalism and as this is an ingrained structure in how the world businesses trade and work, it might be impossible to accept an alternative structure (Clements & Selvanathan, 1994). As an example of a non-market economy, the economy of China can be considered. Chinese economy is in fact called a hybrid economy.
A practical non-market economy must be one that is able to have a clear administrative authority which would not be dependent on market principles of cost (Nee, 1992). The existing market economy ensures that there is increased efficiency and business organizations achieve this by lowering costs, ensuring their people work harder, finding newer markets to sell, expanding their businesses across the globe and others. Now in this context, different markets around the world are connected and the world works as one global market place. This is the situation many business organizations are used to by now (Podkaminer, 2012). For them to get used to a different form of economical undertaking, it would mean reworking their strategies from the core. So even if alternatives can be envisioned, they might not be practical to implement.
