Re: Can Capitalism be replaced ?

Capitalism needs common sense limits, rules and regulations to protect as much of the general public as possible from abuse, threats to health and fraud. A sensibly and logically regulated free market with elements of a public/state sector coexisting alongside it works and will continue to work.

But the way it functioned during, say, the Gilded Age or the runup to the recent global financial crisis? Hell, no.
