B-340 Rayburn House Office Building

Everybody thinks "greed" is bad. But aren't we all greedy? Why do we want more? How much is enough? In search of answers, Stossel discovers that in order to get money from people, you generally have to provide value for them in return, so everybody wins. He also examines how the profit motive has spurred civilization's accomplishments. Why is greed so vilified?

Please also plan on joining us at noon on July 17th and 24th for parts two and three of the series.
