What is greed? Is greed good or bad for society? How is greed any different from selfishness or self-interest? Was greed the main cause of many of the most significant corporate ethical scandals, such as Enron, WorldCom, as well as the recent global financial crisis? To discuss these questions, we will review business ethics and ‘greed’ as portrayed in various Hollywood movies including Quiz Show, Wall Street, Boiler Room, Monster’s Inc., Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, and Margin Call.
