It has to be decided whether efficient production is possible through labour-intensive or capital-intensive techniques.  For Whom To Produce?Finally, the purposeful distribution of final goods and services produced (national income) has to be done; that is, who gets what and how much? The economy needs to decide the best suitable mechanism for distribution of the final products among different segments of the society
