An ideal market economy is one in which all goods and services are voluntarily exchanged for money at market prices. Such as system squeezes the maximum benefits out of a society's available resources without government intervention. In the real world, however no economy actually conforms totally to the idealized world of the smoothly functioning invisible and. Rather, every market economy suffers from imperfections which lead to such ills as excessive pollution, unemployment, and extremes of wealth and poverty.
For that reason, no government anywhere in the world, no matter how conservative, keeps its hand off the economy. In modern economies governments take on many tasks in response to the flaws in the market mechanism. The military, the police, the national weather service, and highway construction are all typical areas of government activity. Socially ventures such as space exploration and scientific research benefit from government funding. Governments may regulate some business while subsidizing others. And governments tax their citizens and redistribute some of the proceeds to the elderly and the needy.
But for all the wide range of possible activities, governments have three main economic functions.
1. Governments increase efficiency by promoting competition.
2. Governments promote equality by using tax and expenditure.
3. Governments foster macroeconomic stability and growth.
