lucrepath

(名詞) 病態地迫切想要賺錢的人。這個字是由 lucre ([貶] 金錢;財富;利潤) 和 psychopath (精神變態者;精神病患) 拼綴而成。

引句:
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."
—Frank Bongiorno, "The writing on the wall," Inside Story, March 18, 2010
