In the original 1987 Wall Street, Michael Douglas plays Gordon Gekko and gives his famous speech on Greed.


Print transcript

The new law of evolution in corporate American seems to be survival of the un-fittest. Well in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated. In the last seven deals that I've been involved with there were 2.5 million stockholders who have made a pre-tax profit of 11 million dollars. I am not a destroyer of companies, I am a liberator of them!

The point is ladies and gentlemen that Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed in all of its forms. Greed for life, money, love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind, and greed - you mark my words - will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the U.S.A.

Thank you very much.
