A neighborhood works to protect itself and its members. It does not need organisations, however they normally do have services.
A society is much more loosely linked group of individuals who live socially together without a common goal. Societies are almost specifically bound together by cash.
Business is what turns a neighborhood into a society.
This is bad in the sense that the member of a society’s objectives are blended and there is no assurance that a person has the benefit of the society as a foundation of his goals. Certainly it is rather rare even in people who in fact work for the society. You lose the close shared support of a community.
This is excellent in a various sense. Because societies can grow to be much bigger. It extends the reach of cooperation, so much so that we now have an international society. One of my objectives is to help reestablish the community back into to the Global society.
We now have billions of people all working and living together mostly in harmony. By far the vast majority are all doing good for the society. It remains in their shared financial interest to do so.
This is the outcome of organisation. It is the money that is paid to businesses that keep them operational. The money is paid for a service or produce.
For the business to stay in company it should not charge excessive otherwise competitors will take away their organisation with less expensive prices.
They need to not charge insufficient otherwise they will not be able to pay their personnel and their personnel will leave to rivals who pay more.
It is a continuous balancing act, where the owner can just take a lot out for himself before business will have a hard time to keep either its customers or its personnel.
Business pays it employees so they can buy product or services from other services. So the money from one business feeds another through its workers. It also utilizes services and buys items from other organisations. So organisations also feed other services straight.
One of the big steps towards the International market is that of delegation and expertise.
For example, one organisation, a farm, grows the food, an item; a second transports it to a wholesaler, a service; the wholesaler with huge storage centers mixes the farms produce with other items and shops them as long as needed and just as long as they require to, this is another service; The wholesaler then uses another transport supplier to deliver a mixture of products to great deals of various stores; The stores then sell the items to the people and other services.
All of these companies need savings account and payment systems between them. This suggests company can specialise and be very good at one task. This is likewise real of people who work for business. Expertise makes for a team that can do much more than an unskilled employee might because they all have various skills.
The 2nd globalizing element is the mega corporations. Sometimes it ends up being more affordable for the shop to own the farm the trucks and the ware homes.
For instance Morrison’s in England are an extremely market chain owning numerous stores selling a large range of items. All their food items they grow is grown on their own farms.
This ensures that farmers get a good wage for what they are doing and it means they can manage the food better and have much better understanding of the unpredictability of the weather on crops so they can manage bad crops and bumper crops by freezing any surplus food on great years for sale in bad years.
The lorry chauffeurs and coordinators are all handled centrally and the ware house might be run by robots. As each step in the process is combined there are less transactions going on and so smaller sized bank charges. As a combined business it only needs one HR department it indicates there is an economy of scale on administering all these staff members.
The last step in the global market is private and company pensions. Individuals are advised to conserve cash for their old age. The majority of pension funds schemes invest their cash in the stock exchange. As it is the very best return on your investment.
This means these mega companies are normally owned by the pensioners who have invested their cash over the years and so the owners of the business are no longer personal people but indirectly the general public. So the cash that was siphoned off from the business by the owners is now going directly into the general publics pocket during retirement minus a small commission.
The excellent outcome of business is that we have worldwide cooperation.
The bad result is that cooperation is based on money and so the relationships are just stable up until someone out contends you, either for your business or your personnel.
In a community all relationships are based upon Trust
In a society that structure of trust is not there.
I want to reintroduce it. This is one reason why Quaker organisations did so well due to the fact that they were run as a community and it is also why cooperatives in general do well.
