     go to previous choice         Choice #34: the 7♣ card            go to next choice 


I believe in individuals and small businesses rationally behaving in a self-interest based economy (which is morally defensible!)  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, or whatever, promotes efficiency, stimulates people to work hard, innovate, and take chances. Modern capitalism is built on commodification / market transactions based on the exchange values 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.
