Capital

Capital

  • Financial or physical assets which can generate income, such as property or investments.

  • Capital is one of the factors of production, it is the stock of man-made resources used in the production of goods and services. The other factors of production are land, labour and entrepreneurs.

  • Money is just a representation of goods or resources - try building a boat on a deserted island with just a pocket full of Euros.
