[Autom. eng. transl.] Whatever the interpretation one wants to give to past events, the fact is that the method of considering joint production as the general case in which to include all types of production processes is now affirming and imposing almost everywhere. Indeed, it has already been mentioned that the logical process of generalization has perhaps proceeded a little too quickly. On the one hand, in fact, rather than naturally, the need was felt to finally dedicate to the analysis of joint production that attention and those energies that (due to the analytical complexity) had tended to save in the past. On the other hand, on the wave of mathematical enthusiasm and elegance, it has tended a little too much to concentrate efforts on the most general case of joint production. This case is so general that it allows too many possibilities and has indeed led to many negative conclusions and few positive conclusions. The book proposes to follow, along with the general route, also the particular way. In other words, it seems that the time has come to go even in depth and specificity, even within a general scheme, provided that the specificity naturally concerns cases which, although particular, are relevant. This seems to be the case with fixed capital, in its various forms, and with non-reproducible means of production. The essays collected in this volume are intended to make a contribution in this direction.
