Greed is not good.

Posted by sdrury on September 10, 2009

At some point we will eventually understand that we have enough. Clothes, cars, games, houses…These two stories from The New Yorker provide examples of when the tipping point was passed in the housing market and how it was subsequently ignored by people who should know better. There is a difference between being against wealth and being against excess; these are illustrations of the latter. One story looks at the rather bloodless view from the top while the other shows the human implications of avarice.
