Briefly explain about stakeholders of the organization and their responsibilities
A stakeholder is any group within or outside the organization that has a stake in the organization's performance. Each stakeholder has a different criterion of responsiveness because it has a different interest in the organization.
A stakeholder includes employees, customers, owners, managers, suppliers and investors. Investors, owners and suppliers' interests are served by managerial efficiency, that is, the use of resources to achieve profits. Employees expect work satisfaction pay and good supervision. Customers are concerned with decisions about the quality and availability of goods and services
Stakeholders can divide two types those are internal and external stakeholders. This diagram explains about that
Customers: The most immediate, influential and targeted stakeholder for any organization is the cutover or the consumer of its goods or services. There is an obvious controversy as to whether the customer is right in the goods and services they choose to buy from a company. It is true that sometimes customers do not recognize the long-term harmful effects of their choices such as in the case of tobacco, milk products for babies and expensive stereo equipment in the case when safety equipment are relegated to optional extras. However, it is equally true that there is no ethical basis to judge whether the provision of such goods and services is right or wrong.
Employees: Social responsibility of the firms towards their employees extend beyond the terms and condition of the contract to include justice in treatment; democratic functioning of the organization; training in new skills and technologies; effective personnel and employment policies and practices; and the provision of social and leisure facilitates.
Local communities: Firms often try to be seen as friendly to their neighborhood. Although this might be considered a genuine concern or just an attempt to buy favor. In both cases, one might argue, the organizations will adopt a proactive tendency to community rather than to wait for long and be reactive.
Government: Governments depend on the provide businesses to get a sizable portion of revues through taxation. In addition, governments also depend on the business organizations to take greater roles in society and to achieve several economic and social objectives such as the regional economic development, training and limitations on the sales of tobacco, for instance.
Suppliers: Taking account of the needs of suppliers are certainly a combination of shrewd business sense and good ethical practice.

Explain different types of economic system and characteristics with examples.
Types of economic systems
There are four main different types of economic systems. These four different types of economic system have evolved as different societies have placed different emphasis on different goals and priorities in their effort.
Traditional economy is a catch-all term normally used to describe economic systems that pertain in societies with extensive subsistence agriculture. The term may also be used for any economy that falls outside of popular notions of market and command economies. The term tends to be used by members of industrialized societies to describe societies deemed "underdeveloped," and often appears alongside such controversial and disparaging terms as "primitive. For this reason, and because the term is vague and unspecific, the term sees little use among scholars in the fields of economics or anthropology, predominating instead in popular discourse. Attempts to give the term a more specific meaning present the "traditional economy" as an economy based on custom and tradition/command. The decisions are based on tradition of the community.
A market economy is an economy in which the prices of goods and services are determined in a free price system. This is often contrasted with a state-directed or planned economy. Command Economic. In the real world, market economies do not exist in pure form, as societies and governments regulate them to varying degrees rather than allow full self-regulation by market forces. The term free-market economy is sometimes used synonymously with market economy, but, as Ludwig Erhard once pointed out, this does not preclude an economy from having social attributes opposed to a laissez-faire system.
most of EU countries
A planned economy is an economic system in which the state directs the economy. It is an economic system in which the central government controls industry such that it makes major decisions regarding the production and distribution of goods and services. Its most extensive form is referred to as a command economy, centrally planned economy, or command and control economy. In such economies, central economic planning by the state or government controls all major sectors of the economy and formulates all decisions about the use of resources and the distribution of output. Planners decide what should be produced and direct lower-level enterprises to produce those goods in accordance with national and social objectives. Planned economies are in contrast to unplanned economies.
A mixed economy is an economy that includes a variety of private and public enterprise, reflecting the characteristics of both market economies and planned economies. Most mixed economies can be described as market economies with strong regulatory oversight, in addition to having a variety of government-sponsored aspects. The underlying premise of the mixed economy is that the means of production are mainly under private ownership; that markets remain the dominant form of economic coordination; and that profit-seeking enterprises and the accumulation of capital would remain the fundamental driving force behind economic activity. There is not one single definition of a mixed economy, but the definitions always involve a degree of private economic freedom mixed with a degree of government regulation of markets. The relative strength or weakness of each component in the national economy can vary greatly between countries.
What is fiscal and monetary policy (explain with fiscal and monetary policy tools)
Fiscal policy relates to government spending and tax collection. For example when demand is low the government can increase the expenditure for many years the government has tended to raise taxes to fund more and more social and defense programs.
