Economic growth requires an environment in which prices are freely formed
– Eustace Davie
Prices, when left alone, "miraculously" direct all resources, including labour and capital, to their most productive uses.
Examine the South African economy to find any activities that are carried out on a basis of voluntary exchange between individuals, under circumstances where peaceful exchanges are not interfered with by bureaucratic action, where prices are arrived at wholly by agreement and I will acknowledge those activities to be capitalistic. I would then defy anyone to show how these activities are causing harm to the population at large.
