Mr Rudd mentioned Gordon Gekko the other day. Apparently he thinks the financial crisis was caused by too many Gekko types. Now Gekko is a fictional character in an Oliver Stone movie but have a look at the relevant clip from the movie. Gekko was getting stuck into a bunch of company fat cats in the context of the scene Gekko was right.

Also here’s Milton Friedman on greed.
