How do we stop greed in people?

Corporate greed is born from individual greed, therefore, it stands to reason that if individuals were not greedy then corporations would not be greedy!  HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH???  Rhetorical question: can the world support everyone striving to own a yacht, living in a 3,000+ sq ft home, and driving 3-4 expensive luxury vehicles? Evil is winning!!!  LESS IS MORE!!!

    "Corporate greed is born from individual greed"

    No. Capitalism is based on, and "justified" by, the assumption that all of us are incorrigible selfish greedy psychopaths.

    HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH???

    We could instate a legal maximumwage, say 10 times the minimumwage (hazard-pay and overtime excluded), and abolish interest and dividend

    can the world support several billion automobiles, carnivores and tobaccosmokers?     nope. We need autarchic walkable (mini)cities

    Different people have different traits.  In the US, there is usually a way to use traits in positive ways because we are free to fulfill our own destiny.  In socialism/communism/fascism, people must worship the state only and forget their own deep seated needs and desires.  All is for the collective state.  That is why so many people end up being reeducated or completely eliminated from dictatorships.  You really can't change human nature.  Most people don't want a yacht.  They want security and respect.

    Genes effect mental traits. So there is no way to stop it, until the gene altering technology is perfected.

    Why is it your, or the Federal Government, to tell me what I should use my money on?

    Capitalism is a perfect system, given to us by Jesus. If the Bible tells us how to live, Capitalism tells us how to live financially.

    Corporations groom greedy people to enjoy their greedy rewards for pursuing more greed.

    Its a vicious endless greed pursuit and thats how we get innovation, better product, better services.  Its in human nature to be greedy and its a powerful motivator.  The corporation is merely rewarding the pursuit of greed which is their primary reason to exist, compete and win.  Win the greed game.

    One thing about shameless greed pursuers, they don't care what others think about their greed.
