I have inserted "national" before financial capital, because there was no international financial capital in Lenin's day, all financial capital was essentially national (belonging to the imperialist homeland) otherwise I can see no sense whatsoever of the vital concept of one of the primary characteristics of Imperialism being the EXPORT of capital. One could hardly EXPORT something that is already internationalisied.


CB:  Isn't exporting capital exactly what made capital international ? Export of capital means the export of capitalist relations of production to the colonies.
