You just said that in your mind there is no such thing as excessive self-interest.
How is buying an item in the hope of selling it later at a higher price "excessive self interest".. I may be wrong but isn't that why millions of people invest in the stock market???
I don't think the Szell box idea is an example of excessive greed, as long as you don't purchase the entire stock.
I was reacting to Berger's knee jerk Greed Is Good sermon.
Buying a second Szell box in hopes of selling it with a profit when the supply has run out is no excessive greed. To me it seems a little futile, but mostly it seemed a poignant contrast to the other poster who had said it was worth buying an extra box at that price to give as a present to a friend.
The original idea of buying stock was to help a business, and if the business went well, you shared in the profits.
