“The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed — for lack of a better word — is good.
Greed is right.
Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.
Greed, in all of its forms — greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.
And greed — you mark my words — will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.”
– from the movie wall street
Greed still reigns strong in America and the world but I think there is a developing movement towards a charitable lifestyle. Just look at companies like Starbucks and Google who are raising the level of worker appreciation or Billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffet donating their Billions to help change the world. Greed for more than you actually need is ok if the rewards are meant to help the greater good.
