Non-capitalist mode of production as a third way of development

DOI: 10.33917/mic-3.110.2023.5-11

The world economic system is analyzed, within which it fixes only two modes of production: capitalist and socialist. Based on a systematic religious and philosophical approach, the author substantiates that Western capitalism itself is divided into two types: Anglo-Saxon and Catholic – Western European. The study of the multi-structured society of the East, based on the hierarchy and subordination of many structures, showed that in such a society the domination of one structure cannot be established: capitalist or socialist. We are talking about a special form of communal, collectivist «Eastern capitalism». This is the third way of social development.
