Economics is a "dismal science" -- surely a legitimate topic...but can we discuss it rigorously or would it be all monkey chatter?
You cited "greed" -- may we precisely define it?

IF it refers to (not defined as) "distribution of currency being based upon ruthless acquisitiveness without adequate counterbalances based upon merit or need"
THEN we would not have a scientific definition.

From a biological perspective, the debate itself has consequences which can skew the merits of the science. So it's very difficult to discuss this scientifically. I believe I could do so in my current state of mental preparation.

One would need not only biological imperatives but also the high-minded ideas of humanity to figure into the discussion, for ideas have consequence in biology. We will form our planet's biosphere based on the quality of our REALLY THINK, not just repeat someone else's nice sounding ideas...and really be "fair,"
not just "equalitarian."
