Related Words, Beliefs, Background for Choice #34

self test A on the above            self test B on the above   


I believe in individuals and small businesses rationally behaving in a diverse, self-interest based economy with widely spread ownership.   As availability of resources, jobs, products and market conditions change, workers, employers, producers, buyers, sellers, etc. compete to maximize gain. Competition, for the most gain, best job, etc, promotes efficiency, lower prices, and anticipating changes.  It stimulates people to work hard, innovate, take chances. Capitalism is built on commodification and market transactions based on the exchange value of things.


I prefer cooperation to competition, since the latter can bring out the worst in people. I prefer locally controlled economic arrangements involving a mixture of co-operative, employee-owned, and private businesses. I like community-based voluntary, democratic organizations in which people join hands in promoting community, common good, and local self-reliance. I dislike big, authoritarian, centralized; I like face to face barter, recognizing experiential value, and distinguishing goods from commodities.
