Rentier capitalism

Rentier capitalism is a term currently used to describe the belief in economic practices of monopolization of access to any kind of property (physical, financial, intellectual, etc.) and gaining significant amounts of profit without contribution to society.[1][2][3] The origins of the term are unclear; it is often said[by whom?] to be used in Marxism, yet the very combination of words rentier and capitalism were never used by Karl Marx himself.
