When the economic conditions were a fixed pie avarice meant one person taking more for themselves, which meant hurting others.


However, in today’s economy, the poor do better when the economy booms and expands the pie.


In reverse morality, the greed of the wealthy -who are responsible for much of the economic growth- benefits the poor.

In this myopic economic or capitalist view greed is positive, but it intentionally avoids the systemic ramifications of discarded dignity or global environmental catastrophe.
