Capitalism was ideally set to run things on their own. Given certain parameters, items will be given their own value based on what people feel would be their priority importance and their assumed value. Things have been working out very well in this system, until we start to realize, things might have actually gone out of control.
Consider this, many of us work anywhere between 8 to 10 hours a day, this does not include our commute to and from work, our morning rituals in preparation for work, and for others, our time spent on some nights preparing for work the next day. Invariably, our entire day was dedicated and focused to work.
