Nobody thought it was never-ending.  There has been rather a lot of drum-banging for
at least the last decade.

Most people only actually started paying attention to it this year.  Or maybe not even then.

A small number of organizations paid attention to it earlier, and maybe they'll make more money
as a result.  I'm not a big fan of it and wish it didn't happen, but you're not claiming that monetizing
information asymmetry is an invalid way of making profits, are you?
