Capital: Wealth that can be used to produce more wealth without loss by consumption or waste.

The generic concept is applicable to natural capital, knowledge capital and so on (i.e., forms of life capital). False reduction of life capital to money capital is the ultimate onto-axiological confusion of the era.
