Greed comes in many shapes and forms

Sir in “more comment online”, “Roubini cameo” we read about a documentary Oliver Stone is preparing on bankers and greed. September 11. Well greed comes in many shapes and forms, not just pecuniary but also ideological. Oliver Stone has for instance recently shown much ideological greed (who knows, perhaps pecuniary greed too) filming a documentary on Hugo Chavez, “South of the Border” where he does not even mention such facts that Chavez cheats the poor of Venezuela, to the tune of about 10% of GDP, by selling petrol at about two US dollar cents per litre (gas at 10 cents per gallon)
