History behind the term 'Capital Every'


The birth of capitalism

In 1795, the term 'capital' was first used in its economic sense by French economist Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy. Tracy defined capital as 'all produce resulting from past labor or affecting future production.' This definition laid the foundation for the capitalist ideology that emphasizes investment, private ownership, and accumulation of wealth as essential for economic growth.


Karl Marx and the critique of capitalism

In 1867, German philosopher and economist Karl Marx published the first volume of his groundbreaking work 'Das Kapital.' Marx's analysis focused on the exploitative nature of capitalism, highlighting its inherent contradictions and predicting its self-destruction. The term 'capital' took on a broader socio-political context, referring not only to economic resources but also to the power and influence wielded by the bourgeoisie.


Max Weber introduces the concept of 'everyday capitalism'

In 1891, German sociologist Max Weber introduced the concept of 'everyday capitalism' through his influential work 'The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.' Weber argued that certain religious beliefs and values, particularly those of Protestantism, contributed to the rise of capitalism. He examined the influence of a 'capital every' mindset that emphasized disciplined work ethics, frugality, and reinvestment of profits into further economic endeavors.


The birth of 'capital every' as a cultural term

During World War II, the United States experienced a rapid economic and industrial expansion. The term 'capital every' gained popularity as a colloquial expression referring to the American dream, upward mobility, and the pursuit of wealth and success. It became deeply ingrained in American culture, reflecting the values associated with entrepreneurialism, innovation, risk-taking, and individualism.


The rise of 'capital every' as a catchphrase

In the 1980s, with the emergence of a booming financial industry and the increasing influence of neoliberal economic policies, 'capital every' found its way into popular culture as a catchphrase embodied by movies like 'Wall Street.' This decade became synonymous with excessive corporate greed, speculative investments, and wealth accumulation at any cost. The term 'capital every' became both celebrated and criticized, reflecting the complexities and controversies of modern capitalism.
