Seriously, Bob.  Paul laid out a fair 'system' if you want to apply it to 'economics'.

Gal 6:2  Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Gal 6:3  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
Gal 6:4  But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
Gal 6:5  For every man shall bear his own burden.

Any worldly system that addresses BOTH of those at the same time deserves at least a bit of credit for 'trying'.  But, sadly, that 'option' is barely covered by the '-isms' of the world. 

Lenin would have claimed vs. 2 supported communism.  Milton Friedman would have claimed vs. 5 supported neo-classical market economics.  I reject them both--as well as any claim that the bible/scripture/spiritual-mindedness is tied up in any economic theory. 

I can imagine a state of mind and spiritual 'government' that would make such an arrangement appealing.  I can't imagine the individual carnal mind and coercive carnal government making it possible in an entire society (much less world), however.

Heb 10:32  But you must continue to remember those earlier days, how after you were enlightened you endured a hard and painful struggle.

I'm a bad steward if I don't do some research before I make any major purchases.
Also, it's not wrong to haggle over the price of a product, after all we aren't forced to buy anything at all, and can take our business elsewhere. Shop around.
Paul made tents, I wonder what he sold them for? :)

I work in my own business. My sales technique is I set the price and if people want it they buy it. Seems to work well but then I make high quality items and let that do the talking and not me. I am always busy so don't use tactics but can't bring myself to do them anyway. People know what they want so I let them choose and I am at peace knowing they paid that price as were happy with it.

Iíve noticed that I have changed in many ways since Bible Truths and the forum and one of them is living life much too seriously.

Another one is learning to rest in God and truly trust Him.

I'm still a work in progress.
