Description
 
Drew Fetherston (au). The origin of greed is a natural wish for abundance. The sin lies not in enjoying good fortune, but in picking someone else’s pocket. This playful examination of greed gives us the lowdown on Midas, peeks in on Croesus & presents a comparison of the worth of John D. Rockefeller & Bill Gates. Travels through history & culture to offer engrossing tidbits about wealth gods, gold rushes & speculation fevers from the South Sea Bubble to the dot.com sweepstakes of the 1990s. Some have swindled on the same routes. We meet Victor Lustig, who conned Al Capone & also sold the Eiffel Tower -- twice! We also look in on the mega-rich spending their money. Color illustrations.
