Greed is good

| March 2006

Gekko holdt en flammende tale til generalforsamlingen i Teldar Paper. Han ville ha aksjene deres, for så å brekke opp selskapet i småbiter og tjene masse penger. Og de solgte selvsagt. Til en alt for lav pris.

“I am not a destroyer of companies. I am a liberator of them!

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed — for lack of a better word — is good.

Greed is right.

Greed works.

Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

Greed, in all of its forms — greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.

And greed — you mark my words — will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.

Thank you very much.”
