As purplema says, capitalism is fast-tracking human civilization to oblivion, and has already driven many animals and plants to extinction. In order
to maximize consumption it has to create markets for material goods, many of which we do not need and would not otherwise want. Advertising, the
mass-media and politicians have succeeded in creating a pervasive capitalist ethos, which is responsible for much of what we think we need or want.
It is not only inefficient as a mechanism for supplying our real needs, but guaranteed to destroy the planet's capacity to do so.
Currently there is no significant alternative. All countries operate within a global capitalist economy.
