“On the free market, everyone earns according to his productive value in satisfying consumer desires. Under statist distribution, everyone earns in proportion to the amount he can plunder from the producers.” – Murray N. Rothbard

Capital is the most important production factor. Without the existence of capital, other resources such as labour or raw materials are difficult to be mixed in a complex endeavour that is business. The creation of genuine capital is directly connected to the saving behaviour, the opposite of consumption. Capital is directly connected to the time preference of individuals and it has a specific cost – interest rate, a fundamental price of economic system. International capital plays a very important role for emerging markets, facing with a limited capacity to save and limited opportunities to invest such savings. Romania today, as the most countries from this region, has clear difficulties to be strongly and directly connected to international financial markets, with negative influence on the economic growth and development.
