Author: Naishadh Saraiya It is said that money isn’t everything, it is the only thing. People who believe this and worship money should remember that the root cause of societal ills and individual downfall is also greed and ego.

Greed, as defined by Webster’s Dictionary, is “a selfish and excessive desire for more of something (usually money) than is needed.” Normally this behavior is applied to relatively wealthy individuals.

One of the most important attributes of moral values is to be able to distinguish between right and wrong such as fairness vs. greed or the wellness of society vs. self-interest. Ethics, honesty and truthfulness round out the rest.
