The government needs to monitor operations in the market to ensure the quality of the offered products to the citizen for the reason government use regulation. The assessment indicates that another major reason for government intervention in the economy is to control activities, monopoly, and prices in the market. For this purpose, the government takes the assistance of financial interventions. Whenever the government fails to regulate markets appropriately it causes to fail the whole national economy.
The major reasons for the Government to take its policy intervention in an economy are (Bénassy-Quéré & Pisani-Ferry, 2018) such as:
• In order to correct the market catastrophe

4. An evaluation of market structures and how they influence business
Market structures basically consist of different structure including monopoly, monopolistic competition, perfect competition, and oligopoly markets.
• Perfect Competition Market Structure
The perfect competition-based market provides the opportunity to the firms to provide the best possible product or service for the targeted customers and society (Dransfield, 2013). The perfect competition also encourages businesses to bring up some innovative outcomes with a competitive advantage. This perfect competition market structure is actually a hypothetically ideal structure of market, in which there are free access and exit which enable the businesses to enter the market effortlessly and exit the market when they found out that the market is not profitable. Examples for the businesses in this perfect competition market structure are agricultural and craft businesses.
