Abstract: Market capitalism has been the economic system of the contemporary world economy since the early stages of its formation. However, at the same time, market capitalism has been subject to a number of threats. Some of these threats arise from market failures. Others arise from the development of anti-capitalist ideologies. During the 20th century, market failures were most conspicuous during war periods and anti-capitalist ideologies mainly took the form of socialist doctrines. At the beginning of the 21st century, a global war seems unlikely, but terrorism presents a threat that may have a number of similar consequences; likewise, socialism (at least in its radical forms) seems obsolete, but anti-globalist movements seem to replace it in a similar role. However, we argue that the main problem that may threaten the role of market capitalism as a global economic system and force it to undergo radical adaptations is the need to preserve natural equilibria.
