小编导语:该视频主要讲述了有关华尔街——贪婪是好的的内容。23年前,迈克尔·道格拉斯饰演的好莱坞影史上数一数二的金融大鳄戈登·盖葛在一次股东大会演讲上抛出了一句惊世骇俗的名言:贪婪是好的。这一价值观是尔虞我诈的华尔街的真实写照,虽然戈登最后进了监狱,但道格拉斯却收获了奥斯卡影帝头衔。接下来和小编一起来观看吧!

Well, I appreciate the opportunity you're giving me, Mr. Cromwell, as the single,...

嗯,我很感激你给我的机会,克伦威尔先生,作为单一的、

...largest shareholder in Teldar Paper, to speak.

最大的泰达纸业股东,来发表讲话。

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we're not here to indulge in fantasy,...

嗯,女士们,先生们, 我们在这里并不是为了沉湎于幻想之中,...

...but in political and economic reality.

而是在谈论政治和经济的现实。

America, America has become a second-rate power.

美国,美国已成为一个二流的政权。

Its trade deficit and its fiscal deficit are at nightmare proportions.

其贸易逆差和财政赤字是噩梦般的比例。

Now, in the days of the free market, when our country was a top industrial power,...

现在,在自由市场的日子里,当我们的国家是一个工业强国…

The Carnegies, the Mellons, the men that built this great industrial empire, made sure of it...

卡耐基、梅隆、那些建立这个伟大工业帝国的人们对它表示肯定...

..because it was their money at stake.

因为这是他们在紧要关头的钱。

Today, management has no stake in the company!

现今,在公司,管理人员没有股份。

Altogether, these men sitting up here own less than three percent of the company.

And where does Mr. Cromwell put his million - dollar salary?

Not in Teldar stock; he owns less than one percent.

You own the company.

That's right, you, the stockholder.

And you are all being royally screwed over by these, these bureaucrats,...

...with their steak lunches, their hunting and fishing trips,...

... their corporate jets and golden parachutes.

This is an outrage!

You're out of line, Gekko!

Teldar Paper, Mr. Cromwell, Teldar Paper has 33 different vice presidents,...

...each earning over 200,000 dollars a year.

Now, I have spent the last two months analyzing...

...what all these guys do and I still can't figure it out.

One thing I do know is that our paper company lost...

...110 million dollars last year, and I'll bet that half of that was spent...

...in all the paperwork going back and forth between all these vice presidents.

The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be survival of the unfittest.

Well, in my book, you either do it right or you get eliminated.

In the last seven deals that I've been involved with,...

Thank you.

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, in all of its forms: greed for life, for money, for 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 USA.

Thank you very much.

...there was accountability to the stockholder.

...there were 2.5 million stockholders who have made a pre - tax profit of 12 billion dollars.

Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of evolutionary spirit.
