Comments: Earned Success

In a free-market capitalist system greed is a null word. Every man who holds accumulation of wealth as his highest value harms only himself.

Greed only has power over others in a non-free economic system. This includes the totalitarian systems and the mixed-economy system in every western nation. These are the systems in which greed can harm one's neighbor.

"If parasitism, favoritism, corruption, and greed for the unearned did not exist, a mixed economy would bring them into existence."

--Ayn Rand, "The Pull Peddlers" from 'Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal' p.170
