     A MAIN VIEW OF CAPITAL IS RELATED TO
     WEALTH PRODUCTION in contrast to MERCANTILISM
     which condenses ideas of VALUE and WEALTH to MONEY
     in ukr VALUTA = CURRENCY
            VOLA     WILL as if money promotes VOLUNTARY
     notable MOST CAPITALISTS SEE WEALTH IN TERMS
             OF PRODUCTION an idea underscored by
     SMITH [#] and RICARDO [#] who theorized that
     CAPITAL REPRESENTS CONSUMPTION GOODS which are
     ADVANCED or PROVIDED TO WORKERS TO SUSTAIN
     FURTHER PRODUCTION but more modern vistas
     PRESENT CAPITAL AS THE COMBINATION OF LABOR with
     CONSUMERS and PRODUCERS REPRESENTING A GLOBAL
     PRODUCTIVE CAPACITY   THE VALUATION OF DIVERSE
     ECONOMIC FORMS IS DETERMINED BY MARKET FORCES
     note HUMANISM or SENSITIVITIES WINCE AT CALLING
          HUMAN LABOR AS "MEANS OF PRODUCTION" but
     in fact LABORERS regardless if called FREE or
     ENSLAVED EXPLOITED or JUVENILE are considered to be
     "PRODUCTIVE AGENTS"

     there are many theories regarding CAPITALISM
     ONE HOLDS THAT CAPITALISM IS EXHAUSTED AND REQUIRES
     INCESSANT INFUSION OF PURCHASING POWER BY
     GOVERNMENT DEFICIT SPENDING         sug> INFLATION
     SUCH INFLATIONARY TRICKS ARE DEFINED BY SOCIALISTS
     AS GOVERNMENTAL FRAUD WHO ALSO POINT OUT THAT
     COLONIALISM WAS REPLACED BY "ECONOMIC IMPERIALISM"
     AND THAT THE FINAL STAGE OF CAPITALISM IS REFLECTED
     IN THE ECONOMIC DOMINANCE BY GIANT TRANSNATIONAL
     CORPORATIONS WHO ACHIEVE SIGNIFICANT POLITICAL
     IMMUNITY FROM AND CONTROL OF LOCAL REGIONAL
     NATIONAL AND EVEN INTERNATIONAL GOVERNING BODIES
     some studies show that CORPORATIONS ENGAGE IN THE
     "PURCHASE" OF ELECTIONS or POLITICAL FAVORS
     TO BOOST THEIR FINANCIAL POSITIONS TO THE DETRIMENT

     per Bantham Publications 1977
     also Max WEBER [#] in "The Protestant
     Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism"
     notes that CAPITALISM IS THE PURSUIT OF
            ACQUISITIONS NO LONGER SUBJECT TO
     MATERIAL NEED  or
     THE PURSUIT OF MONEY FOR "ITS OWN SAKE "
     lit+ in "Turbo-Capitalism: Winners and Losers
          in the Global Economy" Edward LUTTWAK [#]
     poses the question "GROWTH  WHAT FOR?"
     and points to current IDEOLOGY WHICH HAS
     DESTRUCTIVE SIMPLIFICATIONS HIDDEN UNDER
     "GLOBAL MARKETIZATION"
     ONE ABSURDITY WOULD BE TO DECLARE
     MARRIAGE AS "INEFFICIENT" etc.
     in other words LIKE BOLSHEVIKS THEN
     "FREE GLOBAL MARKETEERS" NOW ARE
     "MONIST" or PROPOSE AN EXAGERATED SINGLE IDEA
      LUTTWAK POINTS OUT THAT DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS ON
     HUMANIST AND SOCIAL VALUES AND HOW THE
     NEW SUCH LEADERS REPRESENT
     "POOR PEOPLE WITH MONEY"
     BEFORE OTHERS CALLED SUCH
           "POVERTY OF CULTURE"
