    Of course it is as long as you are not violating some else 's property rights.

    In that case gluttony and jealousy are good too.

    If you squeeze your brain a little you can find positive arguments in everything bad, but that doesn't mean you should...

    And btw Ropa, when are you gonna post something helpful for the community other than lounge threads?

    No pun intended :)

    I cannot play the video unless I allow akamaihd.net to run, so I won't.

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/5-ways-greed-is-good-141911720.html - because an article does a better job in this case than a video.

    - Save More in Your 401(k) Than in a 529
    - Have a Separate, Personal Account
    - Pay Yourself First
    - Ask for 15% More
    - Invest in You

    ^ None of those are greedy, just smart. The article writer/video creator were just using the tagline 'Greed Is Good' to generate traffic, which is the greediest thing about the article.
