First round is for acceptance only.Along with definition,

Profit = A financial gain, especially the difference between the amount earned and the amount spent in buying, operating, or producing something.


I agree to debate this topic with you. Good Luck
Debate Round No. 1


Now a days,Corporations are hard and cold,impersonal entities precisely.They don't have feelings for others and concentrate on the growth of their empire.People who work for them do so for a very practical reason i.e SALARY and other privileges.They also hide behind them to run from social responsibilities.And,as far as i am concerned about advertisement they do not give us any knowledge.Companies buys and sell things for influence.just because they know that tends to profit via good will.They do not care for societies.Never.

Profit is how company defines and recognizes each other.

One might think that the company is inclined to provide contributions to society in return for personal or professional dedicated efforts.But this stoic and indifferent entity not capable for such a return.Setting different employers at different level,paying more to the one who is working more,advertising at their best bolsters my point.

At last,This is very common.If they really want to do that ,If they really want to bring change in society.They could have gone to other committees like NGO to process this change but they didn't.Cause they want to earn profit and only profit.


Although most business" main goal is by definition to make money, there are a great number of organizations that have been established to promote a lifestyle change or tech advances. It depends on the stage of the business lifecycle and the social environment around the business.

There are 5 stages in a business lifecycle. In the concept & start up stage companies are aiming to stabilize, so the aim is to survive, not make money. The growth stage involves developing its product further to optimize its concept, so the aim of the business here is to research & develop its product or expansion strategies. The maturity stage is all about the money so I won"t argue with you on this one. The later stages refer to a business slowing down & they either go bankrupt or restart the cycle again.

The social environment refers to social issues that might affect the business or those associated with the business. Certain needs or demands that hit close to heart that might cause someone or a business to pursue a cause like environmental issues, diseases, or any other social issue.

Now let"s put these two together. Tesla"s Elon Musk built a new business with Tesla, saw it grow and mature & just like in the backward bending supply curve, he made so much money that his goal has become about tech advances and lifestyle changes. Today he is working his company SpaceX, which aim to open up space exploration, finding alternative earths etc. Things that Musk admits he may not see in his lifetime. Here, it"s not about the profit; it is about pushing limits. It will eventually go through a stage where it matures and the business profits from it; however, currently, this business is working to push technology rather than profit.

This is just 1 example out of hundreds more in every sector. Medicine, construction, and even weapons companies are at various stages of their life cycles. So the claim that the business sector"s only aim is to make money is faulty generalization.
