The Capitalism Act, legally known by its official name An Act to Seed Capital to the Public, was an act made to found the Federal Investing Authority and to remove banking regulations. The agency has the ability to buy stock in Weg companies. The agency is a publically-funded venture capitalist agency. Banking regulations were also appealed. Prior to this act, the Weg National Bank was the only bank in Wegmat legally able to operate. Following the promulgation of this act the Bank of Bushwood was created by wealthy New Germans.

Prime Minister Cole Baird was the biggest critic of the act in Parliament. This type of legislation would normally not be able to pass Parliament however in a shocking move, Dylan Achterhof, a Democratic Socialist voted in favor of the Act. This along with Luke Dwyer allowed the act to pass. The President of Wegmat proposed this act and quickly promulgated it.

The results of the act were immense as private individuals received funding from stock as well as loans from the Weg National Bank. Private enterprise took a large growth in Wegmat as expected. Private enterprise was never banned within Wegmat however due to profits being controlled by employees, profit was rarely used to consolidate ownership into one person. The Wegmat Workers Rights Act still allows trade unions to seize companies with a majority vote. This legislation is the most powerful in countering the privatization of business.
