A market for respect,
Capitalism has many benefits. One of those many benefits is respect. Any nation that is a Capitalist nation has respect for private property rights; in turn its citizens respect each other. A good example is a restaurant owner who bans smoking from his restaurant; when he posts a sign that says "No Smoking", smokers respond by going to where they may smoke. So the smoker has freedom to choose to smoke elsewhere and the restaurant owner has the freedom to not allow smoking in his business. It is easy to see why Capitalism is the most moral of all economic systems.
