Another way for an economist
to say you aren't thinking enough about screwing everybody else over to make more cash.
Sasuke had a net economic loss, considering his opportunity cost of not god-modding himself by the method of ripping out his brother's eyeballs, drilling a hole in his skull so that he could rip out Kakashi's eye too, and challenging the entire Akatsuki organization to a royal rumble melee so that he could proceed to absorb all the tailed beasts and rule the planet. Possibly absorbing the planet too. All before he enrolls at the Ninja Academy.
