Greed is a particularly ugly sin. While there are positive characteristics of pride, or even envy, it's almost impossible to use greed in any way that isn't an insult. It conjures images of fat cat CEOs hoarding millions, while their workers earn minimum wage.
But although Ebenezer Scrooge and his ilk are portrayed as misers with serious money, greed can sometimes make you poor. Here are six examples of the way greed can eat away at your pot of gold.

When you read about self-made millionaires and billionaires, it can often seem as if their success was an inevitable result of their tenacity and savvy decisions.
But sometimes those choices are less savvy and more borderline irresponsible — and it would be foolhardy for most of us to try some of these stunts in our own lives.
The stories of people going from rags to riches may be inspiring, but most of us need to remain practical. That's why you should avoid copying these four life decisions successful millionaires have made.

TNT: 9 Ball; HOW TO STAY RICH
This is a copy and paste from The Motley Fool. I removed all of the advertising and I think it makes some very good points for the situation we will soon be in.
Last week I told the story of two investors who went down very different paths - the one with all the degrees, training, and pedigree ended up bankrupt, the country secretary a multimillionaire.
Here's another instructive story about two people who handled money in totally different ways.
Gary Kremen founded online dating site Match.com in 1995. When The New York Timesinterviewed him in 2007, he was 43 years old and worth $10 million.
He's a huge success by any standard. Still, he didn't feel rich.
