Why do many people believe profits on sales of finished goods are much higher than they actually are?
This is a poorly formed question.
"many people" is an undefined term. What do you mean by "many"? 50% of the people? 20 million people? 6 students in a classroom?
Also, this is more of a psychological question than a business question.
Psychology is the study of mental process and behavior. You would consult a psychologist as to why people believe certain things.
