Are thier any viable alternatives to capitalism, that are not extremes of the political spectrum?
yes there is. a form of government that allows any and all the same income as the next person. it would be nice to live in a country where people do jobs because they want to and not just to make money.
We had laissez faire capitalism for the first hundred years of our republic's existence. It ended with the collapse of our financial institutions in 1893 and again in 1929. A viable alternative to capitalism is capitalism without war and conquest. Focus on trade and stop focusing on stealing resources from other countries or trying to control the global market.
I would have to say an alternative maybe just to allow various economies to exist, the whole world doesn't have to be capitalist, if on a local level a community wants to practice a bartering economy and it works for them, so be it. I dont know if i explain this well but a good book about what im talking about is "A post-capitalist politics" by J.K. Gibson-Graham
