n. A person who is pathologically driven to make money.
Universities are a fruitful source of neologisms — I once had a couple of philosopher colleagues who coined the word "lucrepath" for an individual consumed by the desire for money — so I decided to look up "disinvestment."
An act of killing which aimed directly at achieving the technical goal of military success abstracted from the good of citizen-in-state-among-other-states would therefore not be an act of virtue but of vice. It is a disordered act, even if not that of a 'lucrepath'.
The avarice-only reading is not the only way of characterising the profit-motive, and there are some positive grounds for thinking the benefits of profit pursuit are better attributed to the "lucrephile", and not the avarice-only "lucrepath".
