    Capitalism is an economic system representing a broad range of ideologies that fall under the umbrella of "capitalism". Capitalism is defined in many different ways, by Soc.png Socialists it's usually defined as a system where the bourgeoisie exploit the proletariat, by Anmark2.png Market Anarchists it's usually defined as Corp.png corrupt markets and by Libertarian.png Right-Libertarians it's usually defined as a free enterprise system. Capitalism fundamentally needs 5 institutions to function:

    1. Property.png Private Property
    2. Lfree.png Free Exchange
    3. Marketeconomy.png Competition
    4. Caste.png Division of Labor
    5. Community.png Social Co-operation

    Other ingredients necessary for the development of Capitalism are:

    1. Liberty.png Contractual freedom.
    2. Consti.png Constitutional (limited) government.
    3. Lfree.png Free financial markets and access to capital.
    4. Econlib.png Ease of starting and managing a business.
    5. Krit.png A good and efficient law system.

    The meaning of capital is also often misunderstood, since it's not only money but everything necessary for the production of consumer goods: Workers, capacitation of the workers, machines, raw materials, the workplace itself, financial capital (The money that finances those capital goods), etc...

    Capitalism can fall under any cultural and civic positions, but as an economic system, it's usually regarded as right-wing (although some ideologies that can arguably be considered capitalist can also be considered economically centrist or center-left, such as Socdem.png Social Democracy).


    The expression "capitalist", which means a proprietor of capital, shows up sooner than the expression "private enterprise" and dates to the mid-seventeenth century. "Private enterprise" is determined from capital, which developed from capitale, a late Latin word based on caput, signifying "head"— which is likewise the cause of "property" and "cows" in the feeling of versatile property (just a lot later to allude just to livestock). Capital emerged in the thirteenth to fourteenth centuries to allude to reserves, load of product, total of cash or cash conveying interest.

    By 1283, it was utilized in the feeling of the capital resources of an exchanging firm and was regularly traded with different words—riches, cash, reserves, merchandise, resources, property, etc...

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), the term "capitalism" first appeared in English in 1854 in the novel, "The Newcomes" by William Makepeace Thackeray, where he meant "having ownership of capital". Also according to the OED, Carl Adolph Douai, a German American socialist and abolitionist, used the phrase "private capitalism" in 1863.


    Lfree.png Laissez-Faire Capitalism/Unbridled Capitalism Austroliberalism-icon.png

    Laissez-faire capitalism is a form of capitalism where the government doesn't intervene in the economy whatsoever. A laissez-faire economy is one based on a free market, without any regulation on trade, business or working conditions. Laissez-faire capitalists also reject welfare, and believe in little (or even no) taxation. Laissez-faire capitalism can be justified either by arguing that such a system is the most efficient due to auto-regulation of the market, or that such a system is based on freedom, and therefore is the only ethical system. Laissez-faire capitalism is usually associated with libertarian ideologies such as Libertarian.png Libertarianism, Minarchist.png Minarchism, Austrobert.png Austrian Libertarianism and Ancapf.png Anarcho-Capitalism, but it can also be supported by civically neutral, or even authoritarian ideologies.

    Regulationism.png Regulated Capitalism Keynes.png

    Regulated capitalism is a system where the government intervenes in the economy in order to maximize efficiency, and/or to protect workers and consumers. All existing capitalist societies follow this form of capitalism, even the ones with most economic freedom. Economic regulations can range from regulations to protect workers (such as workplace safety laws, minimum wage laws, laws that protect unions, etc...) to environmental regulations that penalize businesses that harm the environment, to government intervention to help the economy during times of crisis, some fo the, now considered, most basic forms of regulation include a central bank with varying degrees of independence (to control the supply of money to make it easy and cheap to borrow to stimulate growth, but also to manually intervene to reduce inflation) and some kind of zoning/licensing laws, though it is to be said that many people today are wanting more relaxed laws also protective or revenue tariffs are other examples of generally liked regulations where the government puts a tax on imported goods, either to try to keep jobs in the country, to raise revenue to fund expenditure or to protect local industries. Tariffs have been criticized in the past for being rather corrupt as national large businesses were infamous in the gilded age for bribing and lobbying politicians to raise tariffs on their goods to prevent foreign competitors from challenging them, tariffs have also been criticized for increasing the price of consumer goods to consumers and driving up poverty in the third world as it deprieves businesses of cheap, plentiful labour which forces up costs and prices. in Some ideologies support minimal regulation to stimulate economic growth, such as Orlib.png Ordo-Liberalism and Neoliberal-icon.png Neoliberalism, while some support quite a lot of regulation to protect the consumer, such as Socdem.png Social Democracy. The Keynes.png Keynesian school of economics is a popular economic school that promotes regulated capitalism.

    Soclib.png Welfare Capitalism Socdem.png

    Soccap.png Welfare Capitalism is a form of Capitalism that promotes the existence of a welfare state, that is, the promotion of the creation of various government owned/ran enterprises that provide different services, such as public education, public healthcare, public housing, etc... This form of capitalism is also present in smaller or bigger proportions, on most modern societies. This system doesn't focus as much on regulation as a way to help the poorer citizens, but the providance of certain universally-needed services, so some modern societies that have large welfare systems, such as Cball-Denmark.png Denmark, dispose of certain regulations such as minimum wage or layoff payment.

    Statecap.png State Capitalism Planned.png

    Statecap.png State Capitalism is an economic system that focuses on the role of government on (for-profit) economic activity. It promotes the existence of various state-owned and state-ran enterprises, but in a different way than Soccap.png Welfare Capitalism. While Welfare Capitalism believes the state's role on the economy is to provide essential services, without much interference on the other sectors of the economy, State Capitalism believes the state should take a fundamental role on commercial activities, both owning a big portion of the economy and highly regulating the private portion of it; although, there is some overlapping between some societies that have in place a Welfarist Capitalist system and ones that have a State Capitalist system, such as Cball-Norway.png Norway, for example. It counts with two primary wings. One that wants an economy where public and private enterprises co-exist, while the other wants a society where private enterprise is banned and the state has a monopoly on production.

    Personality and Behaviour

    Capitalism is obsessed with money and is portrayed as wealthy and owning several businesses. He is extremely anti-taxation (unless that tax is used to help bail out his company), anti-public property, and pro-private ownership of capital. Capitalism is often portrayed with the personality and mannerisms of the character Mr. Krabs from Spongebob Squarepants.

    • Athdem.png Athenian Democracy - Why does one of the only non-capitalists who realizes that I don't support slavery have to mean that in a negative way!? Also slavery is wrong both morally and economically. Ignore the fact that I support sweatshops and wage slavery.

    • Patcon.png Paternalistic Conservatism - He is somewhat capitalistic but he supports this "social welfare" shit. Sorry bro, companies have the freedom to do as they please without taxes being thrusted against their throats to pay for the services of others.

    • Fash.png Fascism - Thinks I'm a degenerate or whatever, but did a damn good job at crushing those commies (even though he was created by a former commie, so it's best to be wary). But he nationalized many industries and was second behind the USSR, which is why I am skeptical about him.
    • Nazi.png National Socialism - Again, goes off about how I'm a degenerate or whatever, but certainly not a bad business partner by any means... One big negative factor in my own opinion of you is that your defeat in World War 2 made Eastern Europe a communist heartland for several decades.

    • Anfem.png Anarcha-Feminism - Same as above but anarchist.

    1. [1] Translation: "What is my first conclusion coming from this movie? This fat capitalist is an absolute GigaChad. Casually juggles with atom bombs without fear, ridicules children, beacuse they're communists, destroys the Stalinist dictatorship's posters and exposes their true nature, hurls money, since he has lots of it, offers alcohol to random people (arguably strong one, as he can afford it) and plays with random kids out of his own will"
