Just a quick understanding.

a) Ads don't necessarily make money. Companies need consumers to buy products from them for ads to work.

b) People want to make money to have resources to transform the world into their ideal image. If you can transform it without that money in the first place, then you can skip the money making process.

c) Even consumers need to be motivated to buy products in the first place which means:

1. They need sustainable lifestyles to afford products, and

2. They need culture for products to fit in.

The bottomline is if you believe profit is all that motivates people to be productive, then think again. There's more to it. A lot more to it.

tl;dr...

...if you think profitability is all that motivates someone to do something for you, think again. Get to know the person, and find out who that person is. Then reflect that person's identity in what you're doing. The person will take pride in your project and produce out of that pride.

Are you commenting on the economy in general or is this something related to DDO-Juggle relations?
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor
