Capitalistic and a Capitalistic Production
If ‘capital’ is the set of produced means of production, (almost) all production is capitalistic. Thus, the presence of capital in this sense can at most be (and in the history of economic doctrines was taken to represent) a necessary condition for defining capitalistic production. Differences arose as to the relative emphasis put on the social or techno-economic aspects of such transformation processes.
