Answer . Socialism refers to a broad array of doctrines or political movements that envisage a socio-economic system in which property and the distribution of wealth are s…ubject to control by the community for the purposes of increasing social and economic equality and cooperation. This control may be either direct-exercised through popular collectives such as workers' councils-or indirect-exercised on behalf of the people by the state. As an economic system, socialism is characterized by state or community ownership or control of the means of production.. The above is an excerpt from the Wikipedia article on Socialism. However, it is quite an elusive term, of which the boundaries have become blurred. For instance, the UK Labour Party (Current UK Government) of which Tony Blair used to lead is a "democratic socialist" party affiliated with Socialism International. The same can be said for the French government, as for the German government and many other European governments, as an example that there is no prevailing definetion of socialism as it varies from one territory to another.
It is difficult to answer this question because many countries that claim to be Socialist or have a Socialist or Communist Party in power do not enact Socialist ideological po…licies. Therefore, there are three very different answers. Note: These lists are not exhaustive. 1) Countries which openly identify as Socialist or Communist, but do NOT implement Socialist policies: People's Republic of China Mongolia Laos Vietnam 2) Countries which do NOT openly identify as Socialist or Communist, but do implement Socialist policies: Bolivia Brazil Chile Ecuador Finland Spain Sweden Venezuela 3) Countries which openly identify as Socialist or Communist, and implement Socialist policies: Cuba North Korea
I am ready to move on to another form of government. This crap we have going here does nothing for the middle class. I don't see any Swedes trying to get to this country.
The grammar is awful in the answer provided. Also, I know there are more socialist or "socialistic" countries than Sweden. Surely some government professor or historian could …provide a better answer.
there are many of them if you are looking for ones that exist today then they are cuba, Vietnam, china, north Korea and lao Cuba, and china are not socialist, they ar…e communist, few people know the difference. Germany, France, and venizula are socialist nations, even canda has been considered one according to Google gov tabs
Yes they are,those who forget about the past are condemned to repeat it.
Socialism is not a government type, it is an economic system referring to social ownership of industries and production. China, Vietnam, N. Korea, and other Communist states a…re considered to have very socialistic economies in that they have public ownership of most industries. Socialism is to be contrasted with social democracy, which means a capitalist economic system with welfare programs funded through taxes. The US and UK have extensive welfare programs. Let's be clear: socialism as practised by Communist states is a very different system from the social democracy as practised from time to time in the UK (when the great majority of the electorate wakes up) and even (when it doesn't) by Conservative Governments who have no problem with maintaining the National Health Service and the other well-established welfare schemes. The great mistake made by so many US citizens is in equating socialism with social democracy.
There are no socialistic countries in Europe.
It's much easier to name the countries that are socialist, as there are fewer. Communist, or Marxist-Leninist, states: China Cuba Laos Vietnam Countries whose constitutio…ns make reference to socialism, but not Marxism: Bangladesh Guyana India North Korea Portugal Sri Lanka Tanzania

It depends entirey on which country "this country" is. However, most countries have socialists because socialism defendsthe rights of the workers and the underprivileged agai…nst largercorporations and more conservative ideologues. In this way, itgives a voice and a power to those who otherwise would have nomechanism to fight for their rights. Socialists have largely beenresponsible for the establishment of labor standards, the creationand designation of national treasures, improving healthcare andaccess to medicine, and shifting the tax burden from a regressivetax on individuals to a progressive tax that targets corporations. In the United States, however, it should be noted thatconservatives tend to use the term "socialist" to tar opinions withwhich they disagree regardless of whether they actually are basedon fundamental socialist policies to begin with. That is not to saythat the US has no socialists, Bernie Sanders of Vermont istypically considered one, but Barack Obama, for example, is not asocialist, but a center-line Democrat.
There has never been a country that is communist as communism requires the absence of government which the dictatorship known as China certainly doesn't have. China was social…ist like the USSR before the early 90s where there were collective farms etc. Deng Xiao Ping introduced reforms to the economy and allowed foreign businesses to enter and for the Chinese to have private enterprise. China was a socialist dictatorship and is now a capitalist dictatorship.
in this era, none of the countries in the world adapt puresocialism, especially in economical aspect
In USSR in WW2
The USSR no longer exists. It was dissolved at the end of 1991. So there is no 'currently salary' for nurses in the USSR.
