Why increasing corporate control of our world is bad

“According to the competitive exclusion principle, if a reinforcing feedback loop rewards the winner of a competition with the means to win further competitions, the result will be the elimination of all but a few competitors.”

For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.  – Mark 4:25

From Thinking in Systems – a primer by Donella H. Meadows

    What a great coincidence: Today, I was finally able to check out Thinking in Systems from my local library. I had requested it several weeks ago.

    An amazing coincidence as I’d just come across this bit of Meadow’s writing today. And, I am extracting quotes from it at this moment. Cheers!
