This is an entrepreneurial type of a thing; instead of competing against others, you have an ever growing pie. How do you make the pie bigger?

    Roll the dough out on a clean floured table top and fit into a large Paella Pan. It is a pan with sides that is as large as an extra large pizza. When you pour in the fillings, don’t make them more than one inch deep because you want your fillings to cook all the way through and set. Here is the picture of a Paella Pan.

    There would have to be other individuals who are willing to take a cut to make the pie bigger (ie. Cut in wages, adding extra available money to invest in something the business needs, which later down the road would help bring in more income)

      @fosheet Are you sure? That idea is based on competition. Why not make a new service, become more valuable by learning something new, by offering a new service or program or whatever?

        @Jear77 same concept you have to have willing people to invest their assets, or willing partners cut back their portion of profits in order to grow the pie

        @fosheet all that is doable if you have something people need or want… or invent a need/ want that wasn’t in existence before. It’s like the idea of mouthwash… people invented the idea of halitosis, when people didn’t care about it before that point.

    Inflating the pie.

    While I understand the issue people have with competition and competency we need to remember that no other social system in the history of Humanity has brought so many people out of abject poverty un an organic and long-lasting way.

    Free markets and free people does create other problems. But not nearly so many as trying to inflate the pie, or tyrannical portion-control.

    Every attempt to socially engineer hierarchies of competency away, has failed spectacularly in THE most murderous experiments our species has seen in recent times.

      @griz you don’t think you can sidestep competition by offering something or a unique combination of things that no one else does?

        For a time perhaps. But no matter how amazing a photo I produce, or insight I come across, book I might write, or gadget I invent . . . there’s always something different and better just around the corner. That’s the process by which we’ve advanced as a species.

        The concept of competency and hierarchy is hard-wired into us. There are specific brain-processes and chemical who’s main job is to track them. (And they are key in producing the negative emotions and depression when we’re not adapting well to competition within the competency heirarchy — and pushing us ahead when we are).

        Various forms of social engineering have tried in vain to find “other ways” of ordering society or approaching outlook on life. But every single attempt has not just failed, but failed in a very murderous way.

        I’m not suggesting we give up looking for more “noble” ways of living.
        But I am strongly cautioning against the incompetency that would suggest we re-try models that have produced some of the worst self-inflicted misery in Human History.

        @griz that time someone is able to do something better might be 20… 50… 100… 500 years down the line! And even if it’s 5, a smart person can release something new in that time frame. And we only live how long? about 100 years max.

        I simply remind the historically challenged of what has not worked time and time again in the past hundred years.

        There is absolutely nothing “new” that the “”smart”” social constructionists are trying today that is not already failed resoundingly and murderously in recent history.

        And the riff that we are not going to be around with the shit hits the fan is sociopathic.

        @griz oh, we might be around, sure… but the point I think is to have so much going on that we simply can’t be affected by it doing so. If you owned GE or Google or Kraft do you think it’d matter if one… or even multiple lines of its products/ services failed? No!

        We may have different understandings of how businesses and human beings function!

        @griz my point is that i think in today’s society, it’s foolish, dangerous even to put all your eggs in one basket. The minimum should be 3. In reality it’s more like 10+ is the ideal number. Diversity is the key. EVERYONE needs to be invested in Real estate. Add to that a 401 k (for companies that can afford them), hobby development into a business, constant networking, saving money, couponing, etc.
