Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
what's the opposite of predator capitalism?

Damfino.  Co-operative syndicalism, I guess.  

In either case, there's still the need to accumulate "capital" - however one defines it - to pay for "investment" - however one defines that.  I don't have a handy definition to trot out. The latifundia of the Roman Iron Age required "capital" in the form of land purchases and slaves; there was continual political strife between debtors and debt holders; but I wouldn't go so far as to claim the Roman Empire was a "predatory capitalist" political-economy although there are degrees of commonality 'tween then and now.
