New research: What are production, work and consumption? (by Rodney Edvinsson):

This paper argues for trans-historical reformulations of the basic economic concepts of production, work and consumption. Important issues concern how to deal with violence, double counting of transaction costs, human capital formation, non-market activities and causation of final consumption. Production, work and consumption are defined as relations between events, the subject matter and the agent. Eight different definitions of GDP are presented.
