Competition

  • is for losers - Peter Thiel
  • nobody wins in a price war
  • when producers are forced to compete the divert attention from innovation to survival
  • is pessimistic
  • is a zero-sum game


Cooperation

  • makes for a bigger pie - better a smaller piece of a bigger pie than a big piece of a small pie
  • we already collaborate eg same date, time etc - W. Edwards Deming
  • is optimistic
  • puts the consumer at the heart of production rather than profits
