the T(hesaurus)-Rex of blogs chomping on malapropos market malapropisms
Greed is a deadly sin, and it is an oft-propagated malapropos market malapropism. This will be a short post with one question.
How can sellers be greedy when buyers determine prices?
It is no large matter
to see through the veil,
the immoral motives
of those whose who avail,
to judge for themselves
our interest and need.
Through every concoction
they hope to succeed,
to blot out from reason
"Profit or Greed?"
PROFIT = economic gain from what you own, produce or control (capital) by free exchange.
GREED = economic gain from what others own, produce or control by coercion.
I think it is fine to enhance quality of life by whatever means, on condition that it does not subtract unfairly from the quality of life of others.
