Their result for The economic knowledge and values test ...

You are a MARXIST.

You believe in total state control of the economy.

You think like Karl Marx. Basically, you hate and distrust the very ideas of economic profit. You believe strongly in equality and social justice, and believe that the state is a good tool for bringing those things about.

Marxists rely strongly on a labor theory of value, from which they derive their ideas of economic fairness. They also reject the idea that man is inherently self-interested in favor of the notion of a latent, socialist nature.

You might describe yourself in terms such as "socialist", "communist", or "liberal".
