Talk:Profit motive

Untitled criticism[edit]

this is a factually misleading article. profit need not be defined in terms of what is known as "money"...any numeraire will do. Since the basis for all maximisation (not just profit) is rationality then it is possible to attribute an 'exchange-rate' to anything. (talk) 18:46, 16 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Revision needed?[edit]

The last paragraph is written with poor grammar and there are no citations. Should we edit this paragraph? (talk) 13:21, 20 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Citation Locations[edit]

The citations in the document are not properly placed on their respective areas. Revision Suggested. (talk) 02:17, 25 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Implicit Bias[edit]

This article cites only one example of a criticism of the profit motive and a questionable one at that, and yet spends a whole section on counter criticism from multiple publications. If this is to be a debate then you need equal time from both sides and the ability to respond to specific criticisms of your argument, not a single straw man. If this is an explanatory article then I think that the counter criticism section should be folded into the main article or relabeled something like "proponents" and rewrite it as people arguing for the profit motive rather than pretending that they're arguing against Michael Moore. Maybe put some actual critical theory into the criticism section, like say Marx, it's embarrassing! (talk) 11:10, 23 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
