Percentage Vs Absolute

Some things have absolute costs and some have percentage costs.  Tax, Interest, Bribes, Bonus, Affiliate Programs, Retailer Margin, etc are some examples where we pay in percentages. Most other stuff works with absolutes.

Absolute seems to work best in the producer consumer scenario.

Percentages do best when the relationship is more of a partnership.

Sometimes I wonder if instead of paying money to each other, we could invest in each other, we would have had better shot at world peace, mutual respect and being human.

Friends,  is what we call the kind of people we invest in.
