Volpone (Italian for “sly fox”) is a comedy play by English playwright Ben Jonson first produced in 1606. A merciless satire of greed and lust, it remains Jonson’s most-performed play, and it is ranked among the finest Jacobean Era comedies.

Text from: Wikipedia

Volpone is already a very rich man. But he worships gold, he understands greed, and he wants to get even richer. He knows that the bankers and lawyers and businessmen in the city around him will stop at nothing to make money… more and more money. Sound familiar?
