Why helping others?

One of the first things you learn when reading the first book The Science of Getting Rich from Wallace Wattles is the need to give more than you receive. Wattles says on trade: to give more in use value that the money they receive for a particular good. Perhaps the limitations of the time, and overstated the value of trade at the time, gave this turn, purely commercial. But its significance is large. Give more than you receive, nothing more and nothing less.

The reason is simple. Thus, being generous to those who give us a good, which may consist of only buy something, enrich the world. For those who are in the trade, the customer is a help, a partner, without it there is no business. If all give more than they give us, the world would benefit. The abundance reign, rather than poverty and misery on vast expanses of our planet.

Of course, one might think that if gives more than receives could be impoverished. And no. Because precisely that Wattles said to give more in use value that the monetary value. So give more, but differently. Of course if I give two loaves of bread in my bakery when they are paying just one, I will break. So is the phrase “to give more in use value” or give something different than what we are giving. Something that would be useful in a different way.

If everyone give a smile when we buy something, or a word of encouragement or appreciation, or simply a good wish, that multiplied by billions make the world richer. They even large corporations have understood this truth after one hundred years. There is a large corporation not having any plans or community development programme of aid to the needy, support for minorities, etc etc etc..

And if these insensitive capitalism monsters have understood. What we expectto understand? (Continue…)
