Notes: Market Versus Social

Market: I want something from you.

Social: I want to do something for you.

The impetus of the first is to get something.

The motivation of the second is to give something.

What, if instead of saying to someone, “I like your new haircut,” I gave them $5.00 because I like it but without telling them why I was giving that money to them?

What emotion does the first create in the person versus the second?

What would the world be like if compliments equaled money?

Money does change things.

Money also engenders improper thoughts: That’s all it was worth to you?

Just notes for now. Maybe something later.
