    How "traditional" do you want to get. Colonialism with slavery? Monarchy's? A feudal society? Tribal life?

    Traditional and Capitalist have 2 different meanings.  Traditional refers to the past while Capitalist refers to an economic system.  So it depends on the society that you are talking about.  A society that has historically (within 200 years) been Capitalist would also be considered to be the traditional economic system--USA.  A society that has changed it's economic system could not be considered a traditional economic system--China.
