I'm assuming "Wall Street"?
I don't think "greed" is the proper or fair term. I am retired and living on a retirement plan and personal investments in companies and many of these are traded on Wall Street. Am I "greedy" if I expect my financial planners to make money for me on my investments? I don't think so.
The stock market is a major part of our capitalist economy. Investments by millions of people like me are how companies grow and profit. And in doing so, they provide employment for citizens as well as products and services world wide.
If Wall Street is "greedy", so is the farmenr who tries to sell corn for more than what it cost him to grow it.
