There are still leadership positions in anarchy, it is more tribal for instance think of indian tribes and chiefs.
Whatever system you go to their will always be hierarchy. Break this down to a family. The man and the wife are dominant over children, they teach their young to be self sufficient.
The problem is that mankind as a whole has not shown the ability to be self reliant.
In such a system their would still be a group that would try to dominate.
Capitalism simply allows supply and demand to determine the market.
Socialism tries to replicate capitalism by trying to determine or influence where markets to go or where they want it to go and by they I mean the government.
The problem with it is that it simply can not do that without first running algorithms that still fail, because the market itself is ever changing and what is in demand today, may not be so much tomorrow.
The simple concept of money alone only allows those to trade goods independent of a bartering system where those only trade good for good.
