Menger (1871 (1968), pp. 8 - 10) tried to bring some sort of order into this heterogeneous set by classifying the goods according to the functions they perform in the process of production, using their remoteness from consumption as a criterion. In Menger's terminology, consumer goods are 'goods of the first order'. Capital goods which are used in the production of these first-order goods are called second-order goods; capital goods which produce second-order goods are called thirdorder goods, and so forth.
G. Garrison (1981) and (1985}, Endres (1987}, and Zuidema (1989). 5 It should be noted that Bohm-Bawerk (1889 (1921}, pp. 39 - 43) distinguished between three types of capital: (1) the subsistence-fund ('Subsistenzfonds'), which contains all goods in the economy under consideration (except its landownership); (2) social capital ('Produktivkapital' or better 'Sozialkapital'), which consists of all goods which are used for production purposes; and (3) private capital ('Privatkapital' or 'Erwerbskapital'}, which renders its owners some rent.
By contrast, Menger did not consider Bohm-Bawerk's introduction of these concepts an improvement. 8 In the Mengerian-subjectivist view, the structure of production should reflect the use which is made of the heterogeneous capital goods. By contrast, the concepts 'average period of production' and 'average waiting time' are intended to give a one-dimensional measure for this structure. Their use implies that such a measure is at all possible. 9 According to Streissler and Weber (1974, p. 231), Menger (1888) forestalled Bohm-Bawerk's publication by emphasizing the heterogeneity of capital goods.
