\kjuːˈpɪdəti\

cupidity

  1. Cupidité.
    • The conqueror’s cupidity created economic problems in the kingdom.
    • Humanity had always been fascinated by the mystery of the falling dice, the turn of a card, the spin of the pointer. At its lowest level, this interest was based on mere cupidity—and that was an emotion that could have no place in a world where everyone possessed all that they could reasonably need. — (Arthur C. Clarke, The City and the Stars, 1956, p. 37.)
