How do members of trading systems think? Members of economic systems have been trained. They have been trained to think individualistically. A. Merkel of Germany is doing this. This is the simple reflex of: “I will protect my own.”
However since we live in an interconnected global system, what each person does affects the other.
Not only is thinking about oneself alone not the only way to think, but also that is not how the system works. It works based on mutual interdependence.
Systems work that way, all systems do. If one person is generous, everyone has to be (it is the same for selfishness, isn’t it?) There is such a thing as capitalist generosity.
