Man füttert das Schwein nicht um des Schweines willen

We live in capitalism and goods and trade determine our lives. Eating and drinking is probably the most basic need and yet the status symbol is also bad.

So these are also goods and money the means of trade. In the narrower sense, goods are understood as economic goods. These are defined by their scarcity. In economics, it is assumed that people have an infinite number of needs. This means that the demand quantity is always greater than the supply quantity.

Since the provision of goods causes costs, we are forced to act economically. The performance is an exaggerated and satirical representation of our system and is intended to show its absurdity.
