What I want is a standard of living that is as high as possible.

By its very definition, that is ONLY available from profits.

Then I suppose that we enter the definition game again :-)
What do you regard as profits?

If I build a nice flower bed in my neighbor's garden and he pays me $1000 for it, what is the profit if I only payed $300 for the flowers?

Best,
Rien.
