first of all it's a very old article from some acedemic discussion which was never meant to be over, so no I came with the one big point: you can't say that some truck which helps to product some good are not depended on human experience o intelectually abilities, so my point is that the human is capital good not some machine you think would run good if the workers are enough payed. I thought you use logic in presenting all the articles in bradcast, but as I rememberd you wanted just to make clear way to addict people to owners of that what you cald capital goods, and thats not true, because this machines are run by the man and without them are useless. O course you can develop AI so fast learnig that in some time they would suprevise your work and claim them as the new masters, so you would be living like a slaves in Egypt many years ago with probably no chance to get back to rule another. So free your mind and let it be not designed for x but designed for the biggest ussage capabilities. As you can look back in history you would see than even a chimp can use some tools, we use better tools, and everyday we invent them to be sold, and then disposed, so change the main goals of design including long life of your poducts, and consistently upgrades that don't need buying your new product, but go to the service and change the things inside them, unless you want to woke up in a world where no one would be able to buy your product - you know what that mean "teoria krążenia elit" zatoczy kolejne koło i będziecie właściwie skazani na łaskę tłumu, a tłum raczej nie podejmuje łaskawych decyzji gdyż jest żądny tego samego co wy - sprawiedliwości

Simone Geometrico - neosb - now you should run to the nearest shop to buy a brand new Junes calendar. Thanks for rethinking your goals.

P.S. If you let the job be done by some computer programs, you should rethink yours money security. :P — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:10, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

what difference do you make between capital goods and assets ? Do you influde Land ? Do you include patents, trade marks, stocks ? If you don t include stocks for some strange reason (I understand bonds are excluded, but stocks, no) do you add all the components of stock value ? I mean a company is a mean of production for another company. I don t see why machinery, patents computers and software would be capital goods when separated, but a company(or a company share) would not.

ALso do you include Art ? After all art is a very durable good, it is not consumed, it can be used as a storage of value

What are your references ?

"For start-ups to be able to do this, others (savers) must either currently be saving or must have saved in the past. It is simply not possible to have some people consuming more than they produce without having others who are either currently producing more than they consume or who did so in the past."

This dubious assertion I quote is dripping with assumption and subjective pretence. Nothing is 'simply not possible', and henceforth should not be considered so. In the least, proclaiming such is too controversial for a communal encyclopedia --, for one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Xan81 (talkcontribs) 20:27, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
