  • Summary:

    The Greed of Man is a Hong Kong television series first broadcast on TVB Jade in 1992. The story, spanning three decades from the 1970s to the 1990s in Hong Kong and Taiwan, addresses various social and financial phenomena of the times, from triad violence to corruption in the Hong Kong stock exchange.

    Ting Hai and Fong Chun-sun were childhood friends. Ting is a stubborn, uneducated and pathologically self-righteous brute who imagines himself to be a living kong-woo hero, while Fong is an honest, cultured and refined leader of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Fong is pressured by some of the most powerful and corrupt bureaucrats in Hong Kong to control the stock market. Immigration officers, police chiefs and government officials all attempted to cash in. Fong manipulated the market such that no one could touch him. The stock guru Yip Tin described the event as a battle to seize control of the “Mandate of Heaven”.

    Fong develops strong feelings for Ting’s girlfriend Lo Wei-ling, and becomes Ting’s rival for her affection. In a fit of fury over Lo’s disaffection, Ting cripples Fong, and later, during an ill-advised attempt at reconciliation, kills him. Without Fong’s moderating influence, the 1973 stock market crash forces many people into extreme poverty. Stock manipulation was one justification for the creation of the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) in February 1974…..
