Greed is bad as it drives people to do unethical, immoral, and illegal things in the pursuit of more money. Rich people can invest their wealth in stocks, bonds, real estate, and other financial investment when they could still be contributing more to society as we have children that are dying of poverty. Another bad result of greed is people using government money to help themselves get rich and build their wealth while taking tax money that could go to help the poor and needy. Most of this money is said to help benefit the poor and needy, but this has yet to be seen. It seems that the money instead goes into the pocket of those who don’t need any more money; while the rich get richer the poor continue to get poorer.
