Hi guys,
As I've stated in several blogs I am still undecided on which economic system I think would be the fairest and most effective
So I was wondering if some capitalists could tell me why capitalism is the best system, any other economic ideals welcome, its just from what I understand the majority of users on this blog are ancap.
Cheers

Have you read any of the books that have been recommended to you?

There's nothing we're going to do or say that's going to make your mind up for you.

It takes a lot of time and effort on your part to have a deep understanding of these topics.

I've read books, watched videos, checked out links and this is just for the purpose of seeing other people's opinions and ideas not really for my benefit. It's just so I can see what other people think and let other people talk about their views, not to persuade me to join them.

Some times it's useful to think in terms of consequences.  What are some consequences associated with following lib ertarian grundnorms?  Some consequences that come to mind are peace, cooperation, conflict avoidance, and utility maximization through voluntary exchange and the division of labor.

Capitalism is simply what people do.  An attempt to stop it requires forcing people to do what you say.  When you do that you are no longer looking at a free society.

Ok, well a lot of people I know that are anti ancap say that without government regulation on trade, the world would be run by corporations because there would be no regulations limiting their growth and influence.
 How would you guys reply to that?

Corporations subsidize huge costs to the public.  Many also gain their power and influence due to the government either paying them, and/or regulating away their competitors. 

As others have said, this is all written about elsewhere in great detail.  These are old worn out questions.

I have a computer (my capital).  I wrote a program and sold it in a voluntary transaction therefore  I am a capitalist. 

If you want effective turn the world over to a dictator/king.  If you want fair rid the world of initiated force.

I've never found the dictator/king to equate to effective.  It is effective for the dictator, but less so for everyone else.
