First Untitled Thread[edit]

The article looked ok to me even if a bit condensed for my taste. Perhaps we could augment it and break it into separate sections for different sources and uses of capital?

Or do you prefer a treatment of bond funds and bank accounts from the individual capitalist's viewpoint to a more macroeconomic societal description?

Keep in mind that Columbus allegedly talked Queen Isabella out the crown jewels to capitalize his venture to the new world. "Financial Capital" can be where a "capitalist" finds it. user:mirwin


The problem is that the article simply defined "financial capital" as "money". If this were the case then we could just redirect this to the article on money.

things liquidatable to money would be better, or "immediately liquid wealth" that can be converted to other types of capital.'

Response: There is now a much more concise definition. (Financial capital is not simply money)

A very good point[edit]

Monkey Business?[edit]

Section 4 on Fixed Capital says: "This is money which is used to purchase food that will remain permanently in the business and help it to make a profit."

I hadn't realized *food* was quite so central to the concept of fixed capital. (Badlermd (talk) 07:34, 23 September 2008 (UTC))

Merge Financial capitalism and Finance capitalism and Financial capital?[edit]

Both of which as I've noted in the comments there are misnomers for the Marxist concept normally styled "Finance Capital" or "Financial Capital", i.e. that specific section of the overall Capitalist class. Both to be consolidated as a single "Marxists Perspectives" § here.

  • No Financial capitalism is different from Financial capital and Finance capitalism. Financial capitalism is a social theory, which is different from the Marxist version of Finance capitalism. Neither belong with Financial capital which is an explanation of financial concepts with no social theorietical implications. Odin 85th gen (talk) 21:00, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
