The Federation, or at least parts of it, seem to operate on a socialist or even [[communism|communist]] economic model.  Evidence includes the lack of currency in many episodes, descriptions of the Federation's non-capitalist economy base, and government monopolies that appear to control space travel, interstellar communications, and scientific research.  In any event, their society is so far removed from a free market economy that many Federation citizens have completely forgotten about capitalism. Captain [[Picard]] and [[Beverly Crusher]] are both intelligent, educated people by Federation standards, yet neither one understood the concept of investment or payment for services rendered.<ref>[[TNG]] "The Neutral Zone"</ref>
