I always hear the argument for capitalism "B bb BUT people won't innovate without the profit motive" WRONG

Humans want to solve problems, create, and innovate, they do not need money to motivate them.  Cavemen were painting art 20,000 years ago without the desire of money.

True scientists like Tesla, he didn't care about money it was about the pursuit of science.

Capitalism does not cause innovation, most new technology is found by government programs like nasa (internet, smartphones, etc)

In my perception regarding about your statement, in our generation even before money is very important. Even up to the present, there are lot of investors all around the world now are thinking more of how they are going to grow of their capital. Just like all the investors who came in crypto world, most of them believed that crypto's could be one of their tools to multiply their capital investment, which they are motivated to invest in it, isn't right?

maybe not all people are motivated because of money, because I see from a number of cases a lot of people who have motivation can only become rich and can do good in their lives, even if they are not rich but they can be very useful for their people, so the motivational mindset of some people has different motivations and will not be the same, and is very complicated to say.
I agree with your opinion, that not everyone is moved by money. sometimes they are also motivated by someone they love, and there are many other things. well, money sometimes only becomes an intermediary to realize that motivation.

This should be the mindset of every People in the World. we should not be driven by the desire for money. Yes, we all need Money but it does not mean that we live for it. Money is just a tool. We have to control to use it properly.

I am agree with some points but if a person has basic needs the he needs money to get self esteem and self actualization to motivate him/herself. Love and money both are important for motivation. High standard of living also motivate people and for that u need money.

They really don't care about technology or government. They're motivate by money because they thought if you have money then you have everything.

that's right we must want to make the world a better place and, thanks to blockchain, this is quite realistic. I think that we should forget about the commercial benefit for some time.

I would like to answer it in two ways:

1. There are people who are contented enough not seeking more money but rather have a better life and purpose in life for as long as they have a good family they are fine. They say that i don’t need to become rich since i cannot also bring it when I die.

2. There are people who are motivated by money because they have needs and are seeking for more. There are also who are rich who wanted more.

To whatever of the two people belong, I don’t have problem with it. That’s there life.
For me, what it is for men to gain the whole world and yet forfeit his soul.
Who say this that people are not motivated by money? All in this world is money and nothing else. For instance if you are not paid for your post will you pass time here? If your answer is yes then you are the foolish person in this world because you are wasting your time. People invest, trade and hold cryptocurrency only for making more and more money.

In my candid opinion, I believe many people are motivated by money.You know there is one thing called money,that everyone is trying to find in life and we all need it, don't let anybody deceive, people always pretend they don't really need it but actually they really need it to make life better and more enjoyable. Just work work and earn money.  Believe it or not we really need it.
Yeah of course people are motivated by money. I am working in an insurance company and when the head office calls us for any meeting or training, they pay all its employees per day. By this way they motivate their employees. If there is no money, nobody will take interest. In this world everyone is working for money. Money is the only factor for survival.

I'm afraid I don't agree with you. Almost people work hard from 8-10 hours per day for What? not for money? No, I don't think so , certainly they want to earn money for their living, if they don' work , they don't have food, they will die . Without money , can you exist? Roll Eyes. However, I agree with you that There are people won't live for money but for making difference , but how many people there are? Tongue
