Greed

The intense, perhaps inordinate, desire for wealth. There is no consensus as to how much desire qualifies as greed. Some believe greed to be positive as it motivates business, which spurs economic growth. Many others, however, believe greed can go too far and create unsustainable growth or growth at the expense of social justice. The morality of greed is a concern in the field of business ethics.
