What business _isn't_ greedy? Do we complain about "greedy greengrocers"?

You need to build systems where people trying to maximize profit isn't a problem. It's not something we've completely figured out (see: externalities)

Ironically if greedy developers got their way in the US we'd have more low or no-parking buildings, as evidenced by the fact that they weren't build "enough" (whatever that means) parking until the law forced them to.
