Labour: - In economics the word labour means employees or workers who are
directly involved in the production process of goods and services. It also includes
workers both physical and mental.


Capital: - In economics the term “capital” is the
measure of the accumulated financial strength of an individual strength of an
individual firm both by fixed assets or current assets. In some of 19th
century books it says that capital is the amount of money needed to set up a business.


Entrepreneur: - Entrepreneur is the person who exercises
initiative by organizing a venture to take benefit of an opportunity and, as
the decision maker, decides what, how, whom, and how much of goods or services
will be produced. He or she supplies risk capital as a risk taker, monitors and
manage the business’ activities as a manager. Usually the entrepreneur is a
