On March 11, 1999 ABC-TV aired "GREED" with John Stossel again.
(it originally aired Feb. 3rd, 1998).  It could be considered ABC News correspondent John Stossel's most trailblazing documentary. HERE HE DEMONSTRATES WHERE GREED, OF ALL THINGS, HAS BEEN GOOD TO EVERYONE. Dr. David Kelley, ex-director of the Institute for Objectivist Studies, and T.J. Rogers of Cypress Semiconductor are interviewed.
ABC's promo page entitled "The Good Greed Can Do" is HERE, and the transcript is HERE.
Stossel presents a new way to define greed by examining good things enlightened self-interest can inspire: Better transportation, faster food, cheaper products. On the program economist Walter Williams observes, "In our country those areas where people are motivated the most by greed are the areas that we’re the most satisfied with, supermarkets, computers, Fedex . . . and those areas where people say we’re motivated by caring are the areas of disaster in our country, such as education, the post office, police services, city garbage collection."
