Hello, today we are broadcasting important news. As of now Canada has turned into a market economy... which holds different principles and values in their economic system.
...and now live on the scene is Fred who will explain more about this matter and situation that has occurred.
Thank you Jena. I am reporting live in front of Johnson parliament building, where the new Republican Party has taken over the government, we will now talk to you about the principles of a free market, since this is what the new government has proposed.
The first main principal of the free market is Individual rights. Everyone has life, liberty and property. Everyone has these individual rights that the government must protect and abide by. Individual rights are an important principle of the free market because the free market system is a system in which the INDIVIDUAL controls everything, rather than the government.
The second principle is limited government. The government should have very little if any involvement in the economy. It should only be there to secure individual rights. The government is not there to set the price or anything, it all resides in the individual rather than the whole. There is very few/no crown corporations ,corporations run by the government and funded by taxes. There should also be extremely low taxes, because government involvement must stay at the minimal level.
We will have to take a quick break and move to another area, since security is not allowing anyone to stand close and take videos beside the parliament building

Officer, please don't touch the lens.
WE ARE EXPERIENCING SOME ISSUES: PLEASE STAND BY
Back at the Allen Household, after seeing the news
AAHHH! That means that they are going to change how they are involved in the economy. This is could be bad for us.
Dad, how are they going to be involved in the market economy?
Let's go somewhere else Emily.
Governments sometimes get involved in a market economy to protect or ensure good practices. They may intervene if they feel consumers are not being treated fairly. An important reason for the government to get involved in a market economy is to prevent monopolies. But governments also have laws that ensure that competition remains among producers/companies
Many companies take advantage and have the exact the same or close to the same prices. This is illegal and it is called price fixing. The Market economy government does not want this to occur and wants there to be competition.
