Greed is an endless pit
The movie shows a scary truth of greed. Greed can consume one until one gets lost in it and can never get out; it's a dark hole that captures the victim forever.

The greed of some leds to poverty for others
Our society today has lost much due to the greed of a few! Environment, family, and events of the year may influence this greed. We need to teach our children better values and resist bad tendencies.

Drawing the Line
Each and every one of us lives like this. We tell ourselves, "But I know when to stop." We tell ourselves, "Just one phone call while on the clock, I deserve it." We tell ourselves, "Why not take it now and pay for it later?" Where should we draw the line? It is not easy to see, always...

Real Estate Greed
my town is suffering from GREED with crazy high prices on apartments. People are going broke and owners raise prices to make up for tenants who disappear. Community welfare organizations can't cope with the mess. People need food because they have so much real estate debt. It started cuz the mayors never approved enough housing starts. Owners care cashing in on human misery.

the nature of greed
It is typically human nature to be greedy, at least at an evolutionary standpoint, even though I'm not sure to what degree evolution corresponds with G-d's creations...This black hole on paper reminded me of one of the gags in the movie "Roger Rabbit."...Furthermore, the biblical story that comes to mind when it comes to greed is the sin a Achan in the Book of Joshua.

Regrettably we don't have any black holes on earth which will consume those greedy souls among us. It will save the taxpayers a bundle.

Greed's relationship to compulsive behavior
This video is about far more than simple philosophical greed; its about the reactionary behavior that we all partake in the domino effect of greedy behavior; which, rather than be satisfied by the first little bit of "sugar in our bowl" we find that the 'original sin' just fuels/begets another demon... if not intercepted with an equal dose of rational thought ... mindfulness or similar thought ....
very thought provoking!! and ii think really important leadership conveyed on this issue/phenomena. Good work!! Thank You

Bulls, Bears and Pigs
Not one hour before coming across this video with my son, he had been acting a little greedy. I explained to him that in the business world, there are three animals. Bulls spend a lot of money in their work and when things are good they make a lot. Bears save a lot and when the winter comes, like Joseph and the 7 lean years in Egypt, they are the ones who come out on top. Then there are the pigs, who always want more, more, more and invariably end up beaten eaten up. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WHEN YOU DELIVERED THE MOST PERFECT VIDEO TO "SUM UP TODAY'S LESSON" ! Thank you! (And of course, we loved Bernie's "piggy, piggy, piggy" in comment number 1 below)
