to wit: the production and distribution of goods and services (an economic system) serves the purpose of getting those goods and services to the point of need or demand. Profit is what is earned in the process. Notice that profit is secondary, meeting the need is primary.
In 20 years of property management, we have done 2 set outs. In one of the evictions, the guy had really nice stuff and nearly everything was gone as soon as we set it out. He didn't come back to ask about his things because he was in jail.
The second one, these people were experts at being evicted. They sat there and watched while our employees carried all there belongs out. When someone came by with a truck, they loaded their possessions in his truck and paid him to move their items to another apartment complex up the road. They didn't realize he was the property owners' son. He moved their things, called me and told me where they moved. I called the manager before they could sign the lease on their new apartment. She refused to let them move in.
