The Economy

You have a problem.

I solve it.

You give me something because I have solved your problem.

I have a problem.

Joe solves it.

I give him something because of what he did for me.

Joe has a problem. . . . .

The economy grows because we can solve problems for each other. Another name for solving problems for someone else is “being in business.” None of us are self-sufficient. If we allow ourselves to rely on others, the economy will grow. If we offer our unique talents, the economy will grow.

Nothing good comes from holding onto your pile of potatoes. Good things happen when we give what we have. We learned that from Stone Soup.
