@johnkuti I find this interesting -- to me, capitalism is the more specific term but to others it seems like jargon. No objection to being flexible with language, but why not use the fairly standard term that is also more exact?
@Matt_Noyes I suppose it depends whether you are trying to explain how people use the word, or the complex set of interrelated phenomena
