A fresh look at the origins of capitalism, and how it affects the modern world. Attached is a brief excert from the upcoming book

Capitalism is not an economic model created by human beings, but is a natural system evolving all round human beings with the ability to survive and to propagate itself from society to society. This ability to propagate has enabled it to expand into a global system, affecting every culture and nation on the face of this planet. Its survival is a testament to the resilience of the system and its ability to adapt to changing conditions. Its ability to adjust can be seen in its evolution from a simple agrarian system to one that could accommodate industrialization and the massive changes it caused globally, to a highly complex and technical transport system distributing surplus information, technology, products, and culture around the world. As a complex, self-propagating, and sustaining natural system, Capitalism has traits and mechanisms which are independent of human beings. Like with weather, it is probably more beneficial to develop tools to understand and to forecast predicted changes in Capitalism rather than attempting to control it. Capitalism is the force which is shaping human culture. We need to direct our energies toward understanding the system and being able to create predictors of how the system will evolve in the future. When I talk about control, I'm referring to such efforts as attempts by individual governments to regulate immigration. People are nothing more than another commodity which the system seeks to distribute. We cannot stop this exchange because to do so would destroy the very system itself. It is a natural progression of the system. People are commodities and the system will work to distribute them as they are needed. This principle is already accepted by many governments but not by the populations within individual nations. We must also understand that boundaries created by governments will prove ineffective to restricting the flow of material as the system seeks to create equilibrium by distributing surplus to where it is needed. Understanding how the global system works is far more productive for humanity than attempting to defeat it. There are fundamental questions that we need to answer about the system to understand how we can best survive with it in the future.

Permit me to respectfully disagree with you here. The only fully 'natural' thing about capitalism is the ethically faulty and morally flawed nature of human beings who engage in capitalistic commerce. In a perfect world, one in which all human beings maintained the highest possible regard for ethics, morals, and optimal behavioral modes of interaction, 'capitalism' would be a refreshingly legitimate and worthy dynamic of great economic utility. However, given that virtually all human beings ultimately fall victim to the ravaging effects of greed, avarice, power, and egoism, capitalism as a lionised economic model (and it is, you know, despite your assertion to the contrary) is so terribly flawed in its practical applications that any group of 'civilised' (I use that term with the greatest irony) people who adopt its precepts are doomed to fail just as surely and utterly as any that preceeded them. In the end, no 'system' is neither any better nor worse than the human beings who operate it. That having been said, I enjoyed reading this excerpt and it will be interesting to read the greater thesis is has been taken from. Aloha mai e.

my son, after reading: "Capitalism is not an economic model created by human beings, but is a natural system evolving all round human beings with the ability to survive and to propagate itself from society to society." i stopped and will not read any further. my son, i suspect a shortcoming of knoeledge on history, economics, sociology, psychology, etc.

examples: my son, how it is possible for pepople to create a natural system. people, my son, dont create neither phisics, nor economics. i can accept propagation from nation to nation, from country to country, yet not from society to society.

persevere
have health and tons of money

While there are many points (in my view, anyway) open to debate, of one thing I am certain: This is a provocative article ... written exceptionally well.
