IF that was truth ..
then there'd be no multi-generational businesses in existence ..
(for it is the long-term GOOD WILL .. the long-term memory of good products/services at a decent price (value) that sustains any business for the long run .. )

it is those that are solely focused on rip offs that ramp up the adverts and rely on the short term attention span (what comes to mind here is the Snake-oil sales pitch .. hucksters .. ambulance chasers .. ) .. these find out quickly that the shilling does not go far .. some can be fooled but that has a definite time limit ..
and quick as these 'fastly furious hand over fist money machines show up .. that is how fast they are GONE ..

Short term memory comes into play when they forget what the sitting politician has done during their term.

I'd say they depend on your long term memory not short term. If I don't like what they make I'll choose another better product and forget the lest satisfying one.

Assuming that was a question. If the government is a profit driven entity, then yes.

Can you expand on what you mean? Every business or even human that has ever existed is a profit-driven entity. Say that humans had longer term memory, it would not make sense to say that no time or resources would then be expended.

Your assumption that I am not intelligent and logical is incorrect, but you said it best yourself, when you assume, you make an ass out of u and me. At least one user down there agreed that you posted a statement. If you posted a question you would have started "Do all profit driven...". But no, you wanted to post a vague open-ended statement to the Sodahead community to give us a collective headache and get annoyed when people take stabs at answering it. Pathetic.

I believe that you have no idea how to explain it because your argument has a weak foundation. I do not know exactly what you mean and clarification is what I requested.

Believe away. What arguement are you talking about, I make no arguement here? You have chosen to insert what is in you mind into my question...take it out and try again. It isn't that difficult.

I made the assumption based on your avoidance to clarify your belief as a weakly structured foundation.

Now, let me think out loud. When you say "memory", I'm wondering if you mean solely memories on the past, or your ability to make future decisions based on the past ones. People who survive in the working class tend to think in a myopic sense, no real long term goals, just taking it day by day. People in other financial classes however, base many of their decisions on what would be most advantageous in the long run. Now, profit-driven entities, I will take in the sense of business and not human beings. 100% of businesses are profit driven, regardless of the scope of their business. The exception to this is "non-profit organizations", but I doubt I could classify this as a "business". Now, businesses rely on the low-incomers short term thinking patterns? Probably not. Certain businesses have target markets that are based in such a class, but others (let's say brokerage firms, financial managers and credit rating agencies) are not. If my thought process is correct, I am not understanding the basis of your statement.

You know what 'assume' does to you and me? I avoid nothing, if you can't answer the question, why argue that you can if I give you the answer? I'll skip the part of you thinking out loud...never assume. I used as few words as needed to ask the question, try answering it with the same number of words, then we'll talk,

For some, there is never enough explanation, and assuming intelligence here is futile...you are here just to argue, why is that, you think it will help you somehow...it won't...first you need to understand, become aware and learn to find a way to agree.

Again, not a question. I've read every answer on this poll. It does not seem a single person agrees with you. People are giving long explanations and you are dismissing them for your vague narrow-minded philosophy. Not worth wasting anymore time on. If you're not going to expand, you've lost your credibility. Have a good day.

There are places I have been to and received shoddy treatment and never went back to them. Then there are places that I do go back to in hopes that their service has gotten better, say like the doctor. Some places I wish I did not have to do service with but have no other choice. An example would be our electric company.

I'm questioning what you mean by "profit driven entities." I profit by my labor. The only non-profit driven entities are saints or Buddhist monks for instance who let other people labor for them, and why should they be profit driven when they have serfs to give them everything they need to subsist on? Or did you mean something more specific?
