== == Illiteracy means human capital is underdeveloped or the labor force is not skilled. This will deter investors since investors would not be too keen on investing in an economy with unskilled workers or the work received by this part of the labor force would generate low levels of income which would reduce their disposable income and in turn will make them financially vulnerable. Thus from an economic standpoint investors will be deterred and from a social standpoint, there could be unemployment or poverty which causes a whole host of other problems.

What type of economics system do you have in the us?

The US has a Mixed Economy. This means that the system is a mix of a Free/ Market Economy (no government interference) and a Centrally Planned Economy (controlled by government). In our system, the government, therefore, can affect and regulate the economy, but cannot control it.

If the US government took over the auto and steel industries how would this affect our economy?

our mixed economy would become less of a command and more of a traditional economy.
