I faintly remember a time when companies tried to succeed by developing outstanding products that conquer the market by merit.

These days development seems almost irrelevant, everything is optimized to extract the most cash from the cheapest, often white-labelled, products.

And on the consumer side? When did we go from "best value for money" to "cheapest whatever it takes".

With the advent of the internet? Social media? Amazon? I really can't tell anymore 🤔

@fribbledom honestly, it’s probably caused by treating companies as assets to be bought and sold rather than institutions that create goods and services.
