Capitalism is an economic system in which the free market alone controls the production of goods and services. It stands in direct contrast to government-controlled economies, where production and prices are set by a central decision-making body.
 
Economist Adam Smith famously compared free markets to an “invisible hand” pushing producers toward goods and services for which there is greatest need.
