A Cartoonist Gets It

Today’s XKCD.

The focus of productive business ventures is to deliver value to customers, and thereby accrue profit. Parasitic business ventures seek profit for the sake of profit. Different focus.

I’m reminded that people often misquote an old saw “money is the root of all evil.” It’s more correctly “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Treating the world as a giant ATM is bad, producing something of value for your community is good. Any zero-summers should feel free to print this out and hang it above your computers.
