I propose to think that monogamy is so discouraging that impoverishes our performance at all levels.
Humans have different amounts of energy, is to perform both physical and intellectual tasks to.
That different amount of energy depends on natural conditions we have chosen by chance as to how challenging the task.
A fun task may significantly delay our first feelings of fatigue, while a boring task can reduce us that resistance in half.
Experts in human resource management devote much "energy" and time to find ways to increase the performance of our working hours, usually through clever stimuli.
To do so they must first know what stimulates human and have written to explain several interesting theories libraries for whom we are "encouraged" by the human condition.
I recognize that knowing our species is something that stimulates me as a study for hours without getting tired.
Something that seems to provoke humans is competition, both their own and others. We like to participate in those competitions where we have a chance to win and we like to watch the competition from other practicing a competition in which we would not have a chance to win.
Indirectly free competition in the markets makes economic agents increase their energy, their passion to win, to redouble their efforts to do the best at the lowest price.
Manufacturers and merchants participating in a market where competition is practiced have more energy than those involved in regulated markets with unique prices.
Worse, nobody does anything when any trade or manufacture is monopolized. Monopolies are radically disincentives.
I propose to think that monogamy is so discouraging that impoverishes our performance in all aspects (vitality, industriousness, creativity).
