Listen to the science podcast about greed

Science Quest

In Science Quest, the Tilburg University Podcast, scientists seek answers to questions about people and society that concern us all. From war to peace. From climate to your wallet, from care to organization and from big data to dating. Our own experts discuss the newest, funniest and most talked-about insights from their own research.

In the tenth episode researchers Karlijn Hoyer (social psychology) and Niels van der Ven (consumer behavior) talk about the many traits of greed. And with professor of theology Willem Marie Speelman we philosophize if greed can be a virtue or a vice.

This podcast is only available in Dutch.
