: : Really, not so, see my point about surviving, growing,a nd attracting investment, etc. profits become an end in themselves.
: You jut named some purposes - "surviving, growing,a nd attracting investment, etc"
Who for? For capital, for profit itself, those purposes are the means of profit, and profit is the end. The market is beyond human control, and now is an end in itself. Hence production is geared towards profits, that will and can never be spent, rather than needs.
