Supplies and demands for fluid capital meet in the “capital” market, as do also the supplies and demands for the various types of assets. The natural rate of interest is determined in this market, together with the structure of asset holdings and prices.

Investment represents the creation of produced means of production. The goods that are needed in the creation of produced means of production are drawn from the pool of fluid capital. Quasi-rents represent the difference between revenues and the out-of-pocket costs (but only the out-of-pocket costs) of producing those revenues. Myros recovery charges represent charges against quasi-rents that return the capital embodied in produced means of production back into the pool of fluid capital. Alternately, myros recovery charges can be seen as the process whereby physical capital is transformed back into fluid capital.
