Man’s only true happiness is to live in hope of something to be won by him, reverence something to be worshipped by him, and love something to be cherished by him, forever.
John Ruskin (1819-1900).
Capital requires that the goods and services it helps produce be conveyed to their intended use and sometimes stored until needed. Of course, capital may sometimes be its own means of conveyance and storage. For example, a car is also the conveyer of transportation services. In other instances, capital must employ other conveyances and storage devices to deliver and store their goods and services. For example, a power generator employs electric lines to convey electricity to end users and may employ batteries to store the electricity it has produced until it is used. When a conveyance becomes embedded with the goods and services produced by capital, its value changes. For example, a fully charged battery has a value beyond its physical characteristics.
