Part 2 of a 5 Part Series Introducing the Concept of Participative Capitalism Our sense of things is that Capitalism is the underlying force that has undermined the current economic system and that it should be replaced. We generally look to some form of socialist solution to replace the Capitalistic one which we deem to have failed. But Wallace D. Wattles was way ahead of the game in 1910 when he pointed out that it is not capitalism that is at fault but the manner in which it has been manipulated by people who operate on the competitive plane as opposed to the creative plane. CREATIVE versus COMPETITIVE PLANE I now turn to the other important book I referred to in part 1 and explore the distinction between power and force developed by David R.
There's a reason why some people have money and some don't. Of course, I'm not counting getting laid off, family tragedy, a stock market collapse, that sort of thing.

Documents galore, paper everywhere, files in every corner of the office and an inability to locate exactly what we need - this used to be the scenario in most offices many years ago. Storage facilities seemed to take up so much more space than the employees themselves. A little later we saw the advent of computers. Paperwork decreased, and data began to be stored in the computers and servers everywhere. But the proverbial files were still there. The numbers had definitely decreased, but we never seemed to get rid of them. Certain sectors such as lawyers and registrars and accountants still have rooms full of records and paper which just have to be there and cannot be replaced.
