Since the Industrial Revolution, employees disconnected the final product of labor, waste money because they lose sense of their value.
In another article (1) I commented that we can fall into poverty by not knowing how to manage our money.
Efficient reason not manage to know is not to know what those slips so well drawn (tickets). If you hardly know its practical method (a blue slip is equal to three liters of cow's milk, for example), we can hardly do a more sophisticated management.
In the article mentioned I commented how in casinos require punters to exchange his money for chips, thereby achieving the players lose, as rapidly as possible, the notion of heritage threatening to be lost (and won by the casino, of course!).
Something similar happens when we visited another country.
We can not assure you that the President acts as the owner of a casino favoring visitor confusion. Yet something similar happens when tourists, to travel the country to visit, must redeem the currency you brought (well known to him) for local currency (unfamiliar).
Tourists often spend more than they thought, among other reasons, because not accurately calculate how much of its economy means that foreign currency unaware.
Something similar happened with the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century occurred in Iglaterra that ended feudalism.
Machines replaced manufacturing (manu-facturing = made with hands) caused, among other phenomena, the workers lose touch with what they produced. They failed to understand that the money they earned was for the furniture, the tissue or utensil that had built.
Employees, to disengage from the final product of labor, waste money because they lose sense of their value.
