  -> O 'κερδοσκόπος' σκοπεύει σε κέρδος. Όλοι μας το κάνουμε, με το ταλέντο μας, τον καιρό μας, τα χρήματα μας. Δεν βλέπω την 'ανρνητική σημασία' (σαν money-grubbing, mercenary).Η κοινωνία των Investors είναι όλοι Speculators, in whatever one invests in.

disagree  PROSGR: φαίνεταιι ότι ζεις πολλά χρόνια στην Αγγλία, έλα στη ελλάδα σήμερα να πεις ότι είσαι κερδοσκόπος και αν δεν σε μαζέψουν πάραυτα να μου τρυπήσεις τη μύτη :)
