Is the Capitalist system a process of evolution or simply the random flux of human events?

“Faced with the near-universal triumph of market forces, many have concluded that capitalism has won out in a process of evolution like that which occurs among species. Intensely innovative and enormously productive, capitalism seems to have driven every other type of economy to extinction.”  John Nicholas Gray is an English political philosopher with interests in analytic philosophy and the history of ideas.
