Are we capitalist “by nature”?

I have been wondering recently whether all children have the “Mine!”-phase or if this is not a cultural universal. This led me to question whether children in China or Cuba do have that phase. We all know these are communist countries and if the main thought of “sharing is caring” (put simply) of communism can be instilled in a human …being other than that it was learned through culture, then and only then communism would have a chance to work. If not (and therefore kids raised by communist parents as not all people in China or Cuba believe in communism), then would we all be capitalist by nature?
