The Avaricious Personality by Robert Jestrow


The Avaricious Personality by Robert Jestrow

This book defines the Avaricious Personality and explores in detail how it spreads a greedy and antisocial vision of life from personal relationships to our society at large. Particular emphasis is given to how the avaricious have transformed the freedom of speech into the freedom to lie and how this has damaged all of our essential social institutions. Strategies are offered to reverse this very dangerous trend. This book is neither academic nor scientific and there are no footnotes or bibliography. It is a book of opinion, observation and theory based upon my many years of practicing as a psychiatrist with a particular interest in human character. My positions are stated vigorously, clearly and succintly as I am convinced that the spread of this disease of greed presents an overwhelming threat to our future.
