If every organization wants to reach to the same answer on 'the best way to make money' then I as a consumer feel sorry on what i have to live with. Cheaper products.
When one is bent upon fitting most into a box, one doesn't even think of building a bigger box. The presence of a billion da vinci's would've been chaotic. The absence of any in organizations keeps 'em rooted. And so, much hair shedding on cost stripping meausres keeps many a unsensible companies from cashing on the unsensible consumers who still can't help piling up on easy loan and credit card debts
Point: Consumer spending is on a high inspite of the rising interest rates. But in order to pinch their pockets, which anyways is unguarded, companies need to create something genuinely desirable/distinguishable and not just try playing the low price game.
