Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But the important point is that no one structured capitalism as a fullblown ideology.

That is not correct. Several versions of capitalism have indeed been codified (see e.g. The New Industrial State, Capitalism and Freedom, Principles of the Political Economy).

Even if it were correct, it would be a distinction without meaning. Nothing prevents an ideology from evolving over the course of several successive iterations. In fact, this has happened with essentially every ideology throughout history.
