Communism doesn't work, it didnt work on earth and it wont in space either. Communism is a "dream" where everyone works together for the bettering of mankind. Sorry, that will never happen, too many special interests and greed. Besides in free markets technology develops faster anyway. Even later in the space age there will still be limited resources to be allocated to unending human wants. Basic economics tells you socialism by itself is doomed to failure. A mixed economic base would be more feasible.

A pure communist society will work best for space travel. A colony of people living in a huge space station needs no money, only the work and commitment of everyone on board for the survival of the colony. Communism is a bad word to most Americans because of the cold war, propaganda against it, the not so communist so called communist goverments of the past, ect....
If it werent for that it would be so obvious to everyone that it is needed for a space colony.
