Wikipedia There is more information available on this subject at Capitalism on the English Wikipedia.

Capitalism is an economic and political philosophy championing free-markets, individual and corporate competition, and private control over the means of production.

The historical period that lead up to the year 2160 had seen a massive expansion of capitalist dominance across colonial territories, space-based agencies and orbital facilities; a factor that contributed immensely to the upsurge of extremist military organizations on both ends of the political spectrum (left-wing Koslovics and right-wing Frieden), challenging age-old capitalist mentality and ultimately leading to the bloody Interplanetary War.[1]

It is widely speculated that the United Nations Space Command and the Unified Earth Government themselves continue to function within a capitalist socioeconomic and political framework since 2170.
