    Default Being greedy is natural, is this true?

    The good and bad side of greed is that
    somewhere, somehow greed does make
    the world go around.

    Similiarly some people agree that
    "money really does make the world go round."
    It is about wanting more and never being
    satisfied with either money, pleasure or property.

    What are your thoughts on the above?

    greed comes in many forms - love, money, for the good.

    It's natural for everyone to want better, for themselves, for people around them....

    Sounds familiar. Bargain for discount. Greed for knowledge and skill. A photographer pursue for better pictures is a form of greed.
    Money is power indeed, no money cannot do. Anyone who tells you money is not important is a hypocrite.

    But I dislike the follow type of greed. Greed with innocent, greed at the expense or sacrifice others. Greed for more greed. Thinking greedy is right. Greedy with intent to harm and cheat others. Greedy with shameful action.

    what when they do not want to share it?

    Somehow, most photographers have been through
    this kind of madness, myself included.
    Any formula for healing?

    Not sharing has nothing to do with being greedy, it's being selfish...

    Right, but a greedy person doesn't make him/her a selfish person

    Rare to find such people.
    Very rare indeed that you can meet someone who
    is greedy and yet very very generous with all that
    he or she has.
