In my mind, the overwhelming benefit to capitalism is that it is an economic order that fits very well with a globalized setting. With a world where boundaries are disappearing with technology and time is disappearing with increases in speed, it seems that with its emphasis on individual startup and self initiation, capitalism is an economic order that is aligned with this setting. Globalized businesses which move at a rapid speed are capitalist endeavors that are able to utilize the individual freedom that is a part of capitalism systems. Government or socially controlled systems involve far too much institutional "red tape" or slower processes that are not conducive to the globalized system that is now enveloping the world and all competing economies. In this light, I think that capitalism's flexibility to work with this new system affords it one benefit that other systems do not have.
