Capital is that allows to create wealth. Indeed money, allowing to acquire quickly goods, favors the creation of wealth. So for the farmer, according to Henry Charles Carey, capital is money and Earth. For the industrialist, capital is money and materials to transform.

Thus the capital changes for each job. For services, the capital can be money and humans, which can be dangerous. Services can be politically oriented so that their capital is money and industries. Industries must be protected so that industries can really benefit from services.

The mankind capital is therefore the Earth. It is not money, which is made from paper. Unless there are some in banks. China wants to appropriate the capital Moon, to take the Helium 3, to merge, to get unlimited energy.
