New word: competition AND cooperation
« on: February 04, 2010, 08:31:18 AM »

From the wordsmiths who've brought you new words like "agoracracy" and "mickeymouserteer" comes a new word that simultaneously means competition AND cooperation SIMULTANEOUSLY, which are really two sides of the same coin.

And that word is...

Anyone?

Anyone?

Will it be  ...comperation?  ...competration?  ...cooptition?  ...coopertition?  Something else entirely?

You can have your say!

I thought it got reduced to a meaningless managerial buzzword, so we might need a new one.  The Wikipedia definition doesn't mention competition at all.

In the meantime, we have socialist idiots telling us that "competition is bad" and "cooperation is good", as if you can possibly have one without the other!

Corporatism - Mercantilism as governmental systems which rely on the concept of compete organizations cooperating

Collusion the secret cooperation of publicly competing agencies.

Coalition a group of individuals with disparate backgrounds seeking the same goal.

"Coopertition" does seem to be in the lead, with "cooptition" in second place.

How do we decide between the two?

Actually, I would define "Agoracracy" as a government by two willing parties without the interference of a third party over load.

We currently have a system that takes production from the private sector and redistribute to non-producers.  Government does not create wealth - it can only steal or borrow to support it's activities.
