The Wikipedia summarizes the Marxist definition as follows:

" a mode of production (in German: Produktionsweise, meaning 'the way of producing') is a specific combination of:

  • productive forces: these include human labour power and the means of production (eg. tools, equipment, buildings and technologies, materials, and improved land) and desire.
  • social and technical relations of production: these include the property, power and control relations governing society's productive assets, often codified in law, cooperative work relations and forms of association, relations between people and the objects of their work, and the relations between social classes."



Christian Siefkes distinguishes:

1. based on personal dependencies (feudalism etc.) 2. based on market exchange (capitalism) 3. based on hierarchical planning (Soviet Union etc.) 4. based on effort sharing (Peerconomy)
