MATERIALS: The stuff used in the production of tangible products that become the tangible products. Materials, also termed raw materials, are part of the land category of scarce resources. Space is also part of the land resource category. Another term that works as a synonym for materials is natural resources. Perhaps it's obvious that without materials, there would be no tangible products.

CAPITAL ACCOUNT SURPLUS: An imbalance in a nation's balance of payments capital account in which payments received by the country for selling domestic assets exceed payments made by the country for purchasing foreign assets. In other words, investment by the domestic economy in foreign assets is greater than foreign investment in domestic assets. This is generally a desireable situation for a domestic economy. However, in the wacky world of international economics, a capital account surplus is often balanced by a current account deficit, which is not generally considered a desireable situation. If, however, the current account does not balance out the capital account, then a capital account surplus contributes to a balance of payments surplus.
