look up any word, like bae:

n. 1. The defining characteristic of human nature. 2. The desire to own or control more resources than others.
Greed is not merely "I want more". Greed is "I want more than everybody else". Thus the majority of people are forcibly kept poor because if everyone had a million dollars, a loaf of bread would cost a hundred grand.

6.
Nickname for anyone who believes profits are more important than people.

(Not as nasty as the nickname the greeds have for non-greeds, which is "idiots." But then again, non-greeds aren't as smart (or vicious). {half-sarcasm intended}
The greeds have organized individually, and via both corporations, and government to: a) limit the power, health, and well-being of the general public via new laws and regulations; b) remove established standards of living, and encourage the workplace to disregard the concerns, safety, and respect of the workers; c) amass excess wealth to one or two percent of the people, to the detriment of the majority; d) unduly influence a significant number of remaining middle-class persons via false, excessively biased, and misleading news reporting (as well as over-riding previous FCC policy that endorsed truth in journalism with 2004 FL appellate court ruling stating that there is no rule/law that says journalism has to be truthful); e) disenfranchise, encourage, and institute new policies and laws limiting, and eliminating, voter rights, aka voter suppression; f) utilize and increase pre-existing bias and intolerance to further divide the majority against itself; and f) continue these and other previous disingenuous reorganization efforts.

1. The pursuit of things that one already has an excess of.

2. Not wanting to use any excess of something to help mankind in anyway other than benefiting or bettering themselves.

Also one of "The 7 Deadly Sins."
The billionaire often criticizes the Salvation Army because if he donates money (which he will NEVER do) the donation will not be in "his/her name" and the Salvation Army will get the "credit" for his donation.

The billionaire is greedy for a non-greedy person would not care as long as it would go to the betterment of a person in need.

In an extreme case of greediness the billionaire may try to make it seem like donating to the Salvation Army is a scam and they keep the money for themselves.
