Sample text

All gainful capital produces, and all productive capital (except for failed capital investments) yields a return. Oddly enough, Brisman does not even want to accept this last thought: as examples he cites ‘streets and roads which merely generate costs for the owner without providing any income’. But it would not be difficult to show that streets and roads actually do furnish income to the corporations that could be regarded as owning them; if they are privately owned then, of course, the owner is free to charge travellers a toll, as is still sometimes done.

But one would think that the younger generation of economists might be more interested in elaborating on the grounds already established—which is certainly not the same as uncritically accepting all of the details in Böhm-Bawerk’s presentation—than in wasting time and energy on rather futile attempts to overthrow their very foundations. A priori it is still somewhat improbable that when an author who is generally recognized, even by his opponents, as one of the most astute thinkers of our time, devotes years of his life to studying a particular scientific issue, the result of his work is such that its principal points could justifiably be regarded as ‘meaningless’, ‘unsuccessful’, ‘of little value’, etc.

On the other hand, land or agricultural output and labour which, among themselves are analogous, original forces of production, form a sharp contrast to the ‘producing means of production’, capital. The old trinity: land, labour and capital, is self-evident and can hardly be replaced by some shorter formula in a purely economic context. But once this classical classification has been accomplished, I do not think anything can be gained scientifically by further decomposing the concept of capital.
