Socialism in Canada has a long history and along with conservatism and liberalism is a political force in Canada. The Socialist Party of Canada was the first Canadian-wide based Socialist party by native Canadians, founded in 1904.
Socialism is a political, social, and economic philosophy encompassing a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership of the means of production. It includes the political theories and movements associated with such systems.
A socialist country is a sovereign state in which everyone in society equally owns the factors of production. In a socialist country, people account for individual needs and social needs. The resources of the country go to both types of needs.
A socialist economic system is characterized by social ownership and operation of the means of production that may take the form of autonomous cooperatives or direct public ownership wherein production is carried out directly for use rather than for profit.
Originally Answered: In socialism, does everyone get paid the same? No. In a communist society, people are not paid the same regardless of how lazy or hardworking they are. Communists believe that people should work “from each according to their ability, and to each according to their needs”.
Here are some of the types of socialistic systems:
- Democratic socialism. In democratic socialism, factors of production are under the management of an elected administration.
- Revolutionary socialism.
- Libertarian socialism.
- Market socialism.
- Green socialism.
It should be pointed out that, unlike the situation with capitalism, under socialism a fall in prices has inflationary effects as it may create excess demand (other things being equal).
