Holacratic assumptions about capitalism

Continuing in the IPS anti-capitalism thread, in the Robertson/Klein conversation ( also see this prior post), another idea is this:

"What if businesses were more like the free market; full of innovation and iteration? They could evolve quickly, meeting the demands of the market around themselves, while simultaneously allowing all the people who run them to be more engaged and invested."

This is a naive view of 'free markets,' at least as they are today. He might be talking more about how Adam Smith originally envisioned them but capitalist markets today are not at all like this. They both need a good dose of the anti-capitalism thread.
