Abstract: We prove that it is independent from $ {\text{ZFC}}$ that for every cardinal $ \kappa $ the following statements are equivalent:

(a) $ \kappa $ is singular;

(b) initial $ \kappa $-compactness (defined above the introduction) is productive;

(c) initial $ \kappa $-compactness is finitely productive; and

(d) the product of two initially $ \kappa $-compact normal spaces is initially $ \kappa $-compact.

In particular, MA$ $ implies that there are two countably compact normal spaces whose product is not countably compact.
