N addition to noting that both have contributed to society in education, politics and economics. Only then will we know in theory that we can put more emphasis on social practice. Or if on the contrary we must dismiss both systems and devising new ones.
Or trying to devise new ones will not only turn in circles, but attempts to bring down these two systems which I think are useless. Issue that is appropriate to seek a look, let’s begin. Before initiating such inquiry, it is important to define the concept of capitalism and communism. Capitalism: Economic system in which private individuals and business firms carry out production and exchange of goods and services through complex transactions involving the prices and markets. Although it has its origins in antiquity, the development of capitalism is a European phenomenon, has evolved in different stages to be considered established in the second half of the nineteenth century. From Europe, specifically from England, the capitalist system was extended to the whole world, being the almost exclusive socio-economic system at the global level until the outbreak of World War I, after which established a new socioeconomic system, the communism, which became the opposite of capitalism. Communism: A term from the early nineteenth century, refers to those theories and political actions to defend an economic and political system based on the socialization of production systems and state control (partial or complete) of economic sectors, which frontally opposed to the principles of capitalism.
