PHYSICAL CAPITAL
TECHNOLOGY, MACHINERY, PRODUCTS, PROCESSES, VEHICLES, INFRASTRUCTURE
Physical capital is the product, factories, plant and equipment associated with business operations, as well as the infrastructure used for transport, communications, energy and so forth owned in both the public and private sector. Physical capital has costs to operate, needs maintenance and depreciates over time. The efficient performance of this physical capital determines how much quality of life there can be relative to the consumption of non-renewable resources.
Physical capital is man made. Some of the physical capital is owned by people, some is owned by companies and some is owned in the commons by the state. There are factories, machinery and equipment, jigs and dyes, vehicles, furniture fixtures and fittings that are assets of companies and on their balance sheets. There are roads and bridges, airports, seaports and water systems and sewer systems that have been built by government and are maintained by government or others. There is working capital, and specifically inventory of product, that is mainly owned by private sector organizations. There are products that are consumed by people to satisfy their needs and their wants. There are houses owned or occupied by people. There are commercial buildings. There are city transit systems. There are parks, theaters for cultural events and stadiums for sports events. Money is in part a piece of physical capital in the sense that physical money (or its virtual equivalent) is needed to make transactions efficiently. Everything in the physical capital has been built using resources and impacting the environment.

FINANCIAL CAPITAL
Financial capital is man made. Financial capital is also the only capital that really does not exist per se, but is a function of the ownership and deployment of the other capitals. This is clear from a company balance sheet where the 'capital' of the company is represented by the (physical) assets of the company less the liabilities. Similarly an individual's wealth (financial capital) may be represented by ownership interest in various assets … house, car, personal property, stocks and bonds, insurance policies, etc … less liabilities. Financial capital presently is the dominant component of the perception of success.

ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE / GDP
GDP is a measure that sends all the wrong signals about economic performance in any mature economy ... though there is a strong correlation between GDP and quality of life in poor developing economies. After the 1970s GDP has proved to be a bad proxy for quality of life in rich mature economies like the United States and Canada, many countries in Europe and Japan.

GDP measures consumption more than anything else. There is a weak correlation between quality of life and GDP ... better measures are possible. MEASURING THE PERFORMANCE OF A CORPORATE ORGANIZATION
