1. You are talkling about 2 different things.

Jobs
and
the corrupt capitalists.

Yes, we do need a means to obtain the stuff we need, money seems the most acceptable way, and so we need a means of getitng either money or the value of money.
Bartering is one example of value with out monetary exchange,.

Now, do we need corrupt capitalists?
(or do they need us?)

Probably not, at this juncture, since they have moved on to fresher pickings in other coutnries to sell their stuff to.
Our value as a consumer society is decreasing, due to the fact most of us are earning much much less than we did 20 years ago.
Howard Kunstler explores a lot of options..google his ..ooops. I mean duck duck go his name for his blog/books.
