A small “p” is beautiful…affordable!
Prices of almost everything around us have increased. The gasoline that we buy for our cars, the food that we eat, the clothing that we wear, the gas that we use for cooking, the prices of services, prices of almost anything that we can think of. Even the smiles that we hope to see from our friends and people around us may have practically diminished due to the many more problems that almost everybody is facing with the tightening up of the whole economy. More and more people are having less and less commodities, I believe, based on what is happening around us, particularly the increasing unemployment and under employment rate. This however, does not necessarily mean having less and less in life, as the air, love and care around us continue to be in abundance.
In view of all these things, I should say, that small has become more beautiful these days, and affordable, too. The fact is that there are items that we really need, like the food items at the grocery stores, the many other household necessities, health care, etc., etc. No matter, what the prices of goods are, you still need them, and when there are no substitutes, all the more you need to stick to a particular item, but perhaps much lesser in quantity at any given time, or small packs at a time.
There is much wisdom for business, therefore to make small and beautiful repackaging of their usual bulk sizes of goods and commodities, so they continue to be affordable to the common man. For a business to recognize this, it would mean operating more years ahead into the future. It even is a form of a corporate social responsibility in some ways. By making small beautiful packages, making affordable certain products, they enable the goods and services that are needed to be acquired, within the reach of a greater number of people. This , too goes back to business in a form of revenue cushion effect. Business may have slowed down with declining revenues, but still it is there for the long-term, as the population continues to increase, assuming that population growth, being a major economic factor has not been stopped or is not in the negative growth level. Can you imagine what would happen to an economy, when there are no more people buying goods and services, because they have gone old or are declining in number towards extinction like the several protected animal, birds or plant species we often hear about? Businesses need buyers of their goods and services! Without a growing populace, who would buy from businesses? Naturally, eventually none! No wonder, the Church is very much against population negative growth rate, and much in favor of population increase at a controlled progression. Shouldn’t businesses therefore support the Church on this?
It is still true that there is strength in number. A family or a country, therefore that has the numbers would eventually have more working hands, and would help strengthen the economy. Let business therefore adopt this perspective in the long term and let businesses and countries survive a hundred more years or so! Amazingly, the mandate of “…go out and multiply, still is ever true to date! Over populating the earth is not a thing to worry about. It really is depopulating the earth that is going to be a threat to businesses and the future. The natural check and balance of nature will take its own accord in the long run, and man’s extinction is prevented by a controlled increase in population, not depopulation. It is good for businesses, and the more hands and brains that continue to be available with an increasing population and continual rejuvenation of mankind, should be used and guided accordingly to make the much needed contributions in keeping the economy and businesses move forward. Let this idea therefore change the paradigm of every business enterprise and organizations for the future.
