The word profit has been largely appropriated to mean financial / monetary profit. Even Jacque Fresco normally uses it in that sense, but a look at the excellent dictionary dot com's entry shows that the words origins are not exclusively to do with money, and even today it can mean advantage, benefit or gain (meaning 3) in any sense, not just the money one.

TZM/TVP argue that putting profit (sc: financial profit) before human need is wrong, and we can see countless examples of this.
