Yes, he is describing it as the means of production. But the wealth of the bourgeoisie provides the workers with an income. Btw, capitalism is an economic system without any morals attached to it, but that is not what we have. It is regulated by the law and when have that it is not capitalism, it is a liberal market economy.

That is not correct : liberalism is an ideology; economy is neutral .

Quite amusing, but you are both right and wrong. The two concepts can never be separated. I know this can be confusing when capitalism is an economic system, but not a political system. Let me elaborate further on what separate and what unites them. First of all, when an ism is an ideology. It's an idea of how to organize the society, so economy is a vital part of it. So you when are saying economy is neutral, that is extremely wrong. There is a huge difference between a liberal market economy and a socialistic economy. Do I need to explain the difference between the two....really? If you don't get the difference, you need to visit a library. That is a place with a lot of books, I presume you have those in Belgium
