basically same to shermanash, any additional market situations that arn't expressly forbidden are all good.
It's actually much simpler as a capitalist to do business in those economic realities as you propose.
I'll round up a few workers that by human nature want more than just their piece of dirt and what they can grow on it. We'll partner up and create a business.
We'll start a home building business first. Just wood and we'll give you landowners some good roofs over your heads, and warm homes. In return we'll receive payment in cows and livestock or produce from the land. With these cows I'll start a milk business.
On another empty lot I'll stack the cows and we'll sell milk to you landowners. I'll also start breeding cows and horses and chickens.
When we've reached enough critical mass of people living in one area, we'll start building canals to have running water into all the homes.
After a certain point, the people will realize they need a currency to trade with. We'll use whatever rare earth metal we can find to trade with it.
Whichever landowner that doesn't want to live in the area anymore, I'll lease the land from them, pay them a nominal yearly fee, and sublease the land to another worker that wants to stay in whichever area suits them. People come and go all the time.
It wouldn't even be fair. I wouldn't even need to charge interest. I'd be a millionaire in livestock currency within a few years. Of course, to avoid public dissatisfaction of my growing wealth, I'll give back a certain % of my livestock and wealth into a communal fund every year.
After I've achieved such status, I would give back most of the livestock I've accumulated back to the people and get myself elected as their communal tribal leader. Mission accomplished.
