Definition of cupidity in English:
Greed for money or possessions.
- The current climate is tailor-made for a populist politician of the left to exploit, by railing against the extravagance, cupidity and even criminality of the money men.
- They are convinced that cupidity, that the desire for wealth, that the worldliness seen in avarice is the ultimate cause for all of the social ills that they see around them.
- In reality, the prospect is implausible: reduce a man's propensity to lust and he will compensate with an increased aggression or cupidity.
