Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  CAPITAL, political economy, commerce. In political economy, it is that 
  portion of the produce of a country, which may be made directly available 
  either to support the human species or to the facilitating of production. 
       2. In commerce, as applied to individuals, it is those objects, whether 
  consisting of money or other property, which a merchant, trader, or other 
  person adventures in an undertaking, or which he contributes to the common 
  stock of a partnership. 2 Bouv. Inst. n. 1458. 
       3. It signifies money put out at interest. 
       4. The fund of a trading company or corporation is also called capital, 
  but in this sense the word stock is generally added to it; thus we say the 
  capital stock of the Bank of North America.
