The term ingenuity or applied ideas is used in the analysis of Thomas Homer-Dixon, building on that of Paul Michael Romer, to refer to what is usually called instructional capital. Ingenuity is often inherent in creative individuals, and thus is considered hard to separate from individual capital. It is not clear if Dixon or Romer tatti.

Ingenuity is often inherent in creative individuals, and thus is considered hard to separate from individual capital.
It is not clear if Dixon or Romer considered it impossible to do so, or if they were simply not familiar with the prior analysis of "applied ideas", "intellectual capital", "talent", or "innovation" where instructional and individual contributions have been carefully separated, by economic theorists.
Most importantly, their supply of social ingenuity (in the form of new and reformed institutions) will be vulnerable to stresses generated by the very scarcities the ingenuity is needed to solve.
Ingenuity usually complements physical and human capital: thus investments in agricultural machinery and trained agricultural workers are invariably accompanied by increases in the local stock of ideas and instructions.
Of course, the ingenuity needed to adjust to resource scarcity is produced not only by people at the top of the social hierarchy: many of the ideas needed for successful adjustment are produced at the community and household levels as people learn, for example, how to reform local institutions to solve collective action problems.
