Economic interaction is based on all parties benefiting. Since both parties are benefiting, it is neither moral or immoral.

No, profit is what drives innovation. Sure, the idea is to take more than you put into it, but everyone benefits in the long run.

"Amoral," not immoral.

I well understand. I didn't really elaborate on the morality. In the end, I believe profit to be moral and beneficial, not amoral or immoral, because the innovation benefits society so much in every field from healthcare to transportation.

No more than earning a wage, salary, or getting paid for a job.

Whatever you meant to say, no. It's not either of them. People making profits only help everyone else.

Do you mean "amoral" or "immoral"?

Amoral (without moral value) , not immoral (morally incorrect).
