Is there an opposite "-ism" word to nepotism? If nepotism refers to the nature of favoring one due to familial or friendly relations, surely there is an antonym to nepotism that conveys the favoring of one due to merit or productivity.
However, "meritism" and "productivism" are not words. Meritorious and productivity work in a pinch to address one's point, but the tense and usage are less helpful when a single "-ism" word could carry the point more concisely.
Thank you for the help!
