      Yes. I’m not really motivated by money (it’s important to have enough to live on, but that doesn’t have to be a lot) so I would always put designing a more efficient, better machine or material above making a profit.

      I work for a government laboratory doing research into new Fusion Reactors. Now money is looked at but we do not have to “make a profit” like a normal company, but in principle I would hope I would make the best machine, or material I could for the job, even if it did reduce profit.
