Humanity as a whole is really good at finding solutions, but a terrible at root cause analysis, so we often would end-up remediating symptoms rather than solving problem. Private companies are quick to come up with new product and keep progress running at a stunning pace, but they can't solve the problems as their focus will be on symptoms that are on the surface, because those are visible to their shareholders, which put company and directors under high pressure.
Doing what's right is always more expensive that just brushing symptoms on the surface.
