??? "like it or not" ?? Was that supposed to mean something?
Raising my kids doesn't maximize profits either, yet millions of
people manage to find that occupation consistent with the American
way of life. When you're making a good living and find it
personally satisfying, it is not necessarily true that everybody will
trade in the satisfaction for another dollar.
Look, clothing from "Nordstrom's" costs plenty more than clothing
from "Walmart," yet they BOTH manage to exist and be profitable, due
to a different set of customers. If the organic cotton growers were
not making money with their product, I don't suppose they would be
objecting to having it destroyed!
