Lets take the definition of money as a ‘medium of exchange’. People cared away with ‘medium’, neglecting the ‘exchange’, the intrinsic quality of the trade. As a result of optimisation for profit, the exchange quality degrades, asymptotically leaving zero + money + waste (of the manufacturing process) — > money = waste
Locally, at a country level or separate global market, one might become an absolute winner and spend money buying genuine products outside on a market that is not corrupted to the complete waste yet. But on the global scale, optimisation for profit leads to nothing but waste because the Earth is the close system.
Zero profit law
in Russian ‘закон нулевой прибыли’ do not confuse it with the zero-profit condition or zero-profit rate as per Marx.
