This paper takes a look at capitalism as an evolutionary process. While acknowledging that the current economic system in Canada is one of capitalism right now, the author explains how this system, faced with failings such as homelessness, environmental degradation and bureaucratic minutiae will continue to evolve into a economy that is less profit driven. By describing the economic evolution process, the paper explains how the industrial revolution evolved into materialism and into a culture of excess consumption. The paper also stresses that even as human needs and wants have changed over history. Humanity still retains many fundamental values and that money will not be enough if pollution and living conditions are deplorable.
