Human capital is the knowledge and skills that workers acquire through training, education, and experience. Human capital is distinct from Technological knowledge, which is society's understanding of how the world works. Human capital measures the resources expended (years of training, education, or experience) transmitting society's technological knowledge to workers.
Natural resources are the inputs into the production of goods and services that are provided by nature, such as land, bodies of water, forests, and mineral deposits.
Physical capital is the stock of tools, machinery, equipment, and structures that are used to produce goods and services.
