1. Competition acts in the economy like a pressure cooker in the kitchen. It exerts pressure on people and speeds up results because it forces people to make greater efforts even when profits cannot motivate them.

2. A private enterprise economy faces the difficult task of obtaining the best possible performance without pressure. A dictatorship may issue government orders under threats of punishment. A democratic system uses different and more effective methods. We know from raising children that some children do their best when we promise them candy as a reward. Others respond better when they see how Johnny does it, and then want to do the same. The first group is motivated by profit, the other by competition.

3. The opportunity for greater profit becomes a less effective incentive as businessmen reach a position of comfort and satisfaction. When a successful man grows older, he may be perfectly satisfied with his business. He hopes to get profit from his business but considers a quiet life his greatest gain. Such attitude is understandable, but it interferes with the progress of a dynamic economy. Competition prevents this danger: established profits will be reduced by new firms copying the successful methods of the old, and profits will disappear entirely as more aggressive competitors advance better, or at least different, products.

4. Competition and profit drive the economy toward better want satisfaction. The hope for profit exerts its push on the producer. The producer undertakes something new that appeals to the consumer and makes the producer rich in the bargain. As soon as he reaches his goal and takes it easy others imitate him and pull his profits down until they are wiped out.

5. Competition satisfies several objectives. It prevents profits from continuing, after a risk has been reduced by experience. It permits imitation at a lower price. Competition also causes the introduction of improvements, which can produce the same output more cheaply. Profit may help to overcome the risk in making something new, but it is rarely a sufficient incentive to force management into a revision of outdated operating methods. Only the constant pressure of competition will force business to streamline production, reduce costs, modernize its thinking. Competition is an essential ingredient in the progress of free enterprise.
