Greed

​’Every now and again I am staggered by the extraordinary greed of these people,’ said Courilof. ‘An ordinary man has the right to be greedy, because he knows that otherwise he would starve to death. But these people who have everything — money, friends in high places, property — they never have enough. I just don’t understand it.
