Most vampires will bleed at some point in a game, and in many decks bleeding is all they will do.
Capitalist turns a bleed into a bleed plus a hunt, which in turn could be used for pool gain via a Blood Doll. This makes Capitalist a very versatile card.

Unfortunately, Captialist is limited only to Sabbat vampires, which limits its use considerably. It is possible to make vampires Sabbat via Into the Fire or more difficult options, but that's probably too much work just to get Capitalist on a vampire.

It would have been nice to see this card limited to non-Camarilla, as the Ravnos and Baali would be prime candidates to become capitalists. Despite it being useful only to Sabbat vampires, it is still a very good card. A Tzimisce bleed deck idea I shamefully stole from Mesh in Australia uses this card to good effect.
