Can a seller, buyer, or user ever fit into one of the other categories simultaneously? (e.g. can one ever be both a buyer and a user)

 

Other than a simple profit motive, is there any reason the seller wants to sell it?

If so, is having unsold quantities a detriment to the seller?

 

Is there more than one buyer, seller, and/or user in the world?

 

Could a buyer resist buying it without significant detriment to himself?

If so, can he forego purchase without significant detriment to the user?

 

Assuming they are not the same person, does the buyer freely give this item to the user without expecting anything in return?

 

Does this cycle of sell, buy, use repeat on a regular basis?
