Gordon is the premiere capitalist. To him its not about how much money one has as its a "zero sum game." Somebody wins and somebody loses, nothing more and nothing less. Gekko proudly boosts that he makes nothing instead he owns. During a speech to shareholders of Blue Star Airlines, Gekko proclaims that greed is good, greed for life, for love, and even for power. Greed to Gekko "has marked the upward surge of mankind." Greed drives things forward in nature and in man. Gekko uses inside information to gain the upper hand in his stock investments. He signs over control of his portofolio to Bud Fox at one point so he could be fully insulated from any potental legal downfall down the road.
