Greed is Good

The actual quote is: "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" (thanks IMDB).

A great movie (Wall Street) that grew larger and larger as time passed. It sounds like Gordon Gekko may be making a comeback in a new film called "Money Never Sleeps". The Telegraph has an article that discusses the stature of Wall Street and the ideas behind the new movie.

I'm interested, but mindful that most sequels fail to recapture or improve on the initial magic that the first hit provided.
