### [[Most Modern Businesses Are Scams]] #Business #Marketing #Values #Ethics #Dystopia #Capitalism #Opinion Almost every service and product today is a scam! In its core, business used to be based on providing someone with something they value. Honesty, integrity, and ownership were business fundamentals. I confidently say that the MAJORITY of business today is based on FOOLING people into thinking that the business is providing them with value. 9/10 businesses around us try so hard to convince us to buy their stuff. Marketing budgets are larger than product and service budgets. I won't get into small merchants. since even MAJOR products from the biggest brands are delivered unfinished at best, useless at worst. Businesses today blatantly lie and manipulate their way around their relationship with prospects and customers. And I emphasize, this is the case with MOST businesses. Honest businesses are now a niche. Business is no longer based on providing people with value. It is now based on making people THINK that the business is providing them with value. > [!rtl]- بالعربي > > [!seealso] Related Thoughts > > Related thoughts will appear here when available.
