I imagine it would be a bit like Weyland Yutani in the Alien universe. The military has affectively become the company's private army as they are the "largest shareholders".
Fascism, syndicalism, 3rd way or national socialism. Period.
Just because there isn't a goverment doesn't mean there aren't specific human rights.
Just because there are no laws doesn't mean i can do whatever i want to do.
The goverment first takes away your freedom to then protect it, sounds good, huh?
Lost all my text before, so gonna recap quickly to make abit more understandable
True capitalism (anarcho-libertarianism) is the only economic/politic (altought the word politic shouldn't exist) that doesn't abuse human's own rights.
Communism takes away the rights from people and give them to people with higher power. If communism doens't work in practice, it's not a good theory.
The way corpoations work in a True capitalistic society would make it pretty impossible for them to start ruling over others. It's right now where bad companys get subsidies from the state and gets different kind of benefits that makes it so they can decide and rule over us. Think the poser below me summed this up though

That's really what bugs most people about Capitalism, there isn't much room for government to wiggle in there and straighten things out. You'll have to do some work yourself or take some responsability for your own wealth if you want to have any. Most people don't want that responsibility and would rather just have government do something that makes them feel good, even though government NEVER has their better interests in mind anyway.
I honestly wouldn't want to choose any of these three options, because unregulated capitalism would be oppressive, communism and fascism are way too easily corrupted and abused by individuals or parties; because humanity is flawed and there is no such thing as true equality when ambitious individuals or parties operate in reality.
If we're talking about ideally though, outside the means of practice and as the inherent ideas as they're conceived 'on paper', I'd take Communism. Sadly, along with fascism, it's an unstable form of government inherent to allowing the manipulative to come to power.
Too bad Republics aren't an option. :P
Without laws controlling the ability for corporations to achieve monopoly status, the market economy would be dominated by a few calculating, slick and lucky individuals. They would be able to set any price they wish, making it hard for people to afford basic necessities, there would be no need for workers' rights if there are no other employers to seek work with. Society would be more divided into class strata, with the ultra wealthy holding almost absolute power and working-class being nothing more than a human resource they could hire for whatever wage they chose and sell goods with whatever kind of mark-up they wished.
The market lends itself to the formation of monopolies and I think it is almost utopian thinking to believe a society with no government, being controlled by market forces would not naturally develop in Totalitarian Oligarchies with just as much death as was caused by the Stalinists at the height of Uncle Joe's power, only the rulers would have the ability to hide behind the nature of the market (supply & demand/efficiency favouring) to excuse deaths of starvation and exposure.
I believe the dream of small time business interacting fairly with an awareness of morality when factoring business choices and services being provided through "private donations" is a delusion. The market favours the ruthless and cold (not being sad about firing people, destroying competition, setting unreasonable prices on the goods and services they supply). Just look at what kind of person Ayn Rand was.
The advantage we have in a mixed economy is the block for governments and private business to acquire total control of the state apparatus. I think absolute Capitalism is just as likely to fail as the attempt at Communism from 1917-1926.
To try and tie this back into OP, allowing semi-unregulated capitalism in the US the past decade has led to a recession.
There has never been a truly free market example of capitalism, because governments recognize the need to intervene whether to protect the rights of their citizens or protect their own interests.
All three ideologies are incredible ideas...until you get humanity involved. If we were robots without feelings *or* we weren't greedy sacks of shit...they'd all work.
The government always has the best interests of their people in their mind because they want to be re-elected, thats how it works in Belgium at least.
But if you have a corrupt government I can see where you are comming from.

I would take most branches of communism before the other two systems.
