Financial capitalism vs human capitalism

In the old capitalist system, everyone competes against everyone else. It's a war of all against all.

In the new capitalism, everyone uses everyone else. However, these "usership" ties are win-win.

That's because with so much information and opportunities out there, no single firm (and certainly no single person!) can know it all, or execute it all.

(Peerflix ( is a good example of people trading with other people, using a Web-based platform.)

This is where networking software comes in handy. You can begin to network and connect with people, and use their knowledge, resources and experience while encouraging to do the same with you.
