In a society where people don't expect to deal with each other again, a transactional mentality is rewarded. (i.e. "Screw you. I got mine.") That's common in large countries, sadly.

In small towns and small countries, people expect to deal with each other again and again, so a relationship orientation is rewarded.

I think about how to create societies of sustainable, technological abundance. My book, A Celebration Society, offers one solution. It has been well received.
