As I said in other posts, no matter what your wealth or status, people aspire to more and 'better', both for themselves and their families, even if they don't actually need it and even can't utilise it. It is human nature and what drives development.

Actually no, it's the nature of your specific mercantilist society -- it simplifies a job of people who sell products. You believe that it is universal because this is the only ideology you were exposed to.

It also masquerades as promoting production and innovation, but in reality it helps selling things at profit, and does little beyond that.

I recognise abject poverty and the aspiration of people to rise above it when I see it.
