Open source economy which derivates from the open source software draws much attention due to its challenges to western economics. For instance, the participants of open source communities have the action tendency of egoism and altruism which violates the hypothesis of economic man in western economics; the distinct production pattern and governing mechanism of open source communities are more efficient than the traditional corporate system in some aspects, and the production model overcomes the dilemma of public goods supply.However, the open source economy strongly accords with the socialist economics of Marxism. Furthermore, the study on open source economy provides important theoretical value for the test and development of Marxist economics.
