DOWNLOAD COMPLETE ARTICLE PDF

The term “greed” is frequently associated among the principal causes of the 2008 financial crisis. For the most part these commentaries describe trends “from the outside” as experts try to make sense of what transpired at the world’s financial epicenters. References to greed also occur in respect to a gradual but unmistakable sea change in our cultural and institutional values. But what does greed do to individuals? Combining insights from moral theology and ethics, spirituality, psychology, and social criticism, the article aims to explore greed’s subterranean existence and effects on human beings and their personal development.
