Edited by Elizabeth Ronis and Leslie Shaw, with contributions by the participants in Symposium 2009:  Greed:  Sex, Money, Power, and Politics.

"Greed was central to the recent American financial debacle. The debacle destroyed many trillions of dollars of wealth across the globe and vastly diminished the status of the United States as a  model for economic life. Yet our understanding of greed and how it operates has remained primitive. Greed is, however, a desire; a desire for wealth and the trappings of wealth.  Now, psychoanalysis has come to the rescue. Desires are what psychoanalysis is all about. In this fascinating collection of papers, we get insights and explanations not only of the phenomenon but of many of those at the heart of the debacle who appear to have been driven by greed."
