It is short hand and not theologically correct. Of course you know that Gordon Gecko is a character in a movie (two movies, now), not a real person. He is a character meant to personify the self-centered, avaricish Wall Street type who loves only money and has no moral boundaries. He is famous for proclaiming that "greed is good." In the latest movie he imagines that money is a "she" who sleeps with him "with one eye open." So, frankly the character is so over-drawn as to have a real mental health problem when it comes to economics.
Are there real people like Gordon Gecko? My own experience with people who work in the finance industry is that many (maybe most) are normal people with strong moral limits and no mental health problem when it comes to money. Some are people who have centered their life in Christ and work to bring Jesus and His values to Wall Street. It may be, as in many professions, that it takes someone who lacks balance to get to the top and that leadership includes an undue percentage of Gordon Geckos.
Unfortunately, it seems that a significant percentage of business (in all industries) seems to think that money cannot be made if one is completely open and fair with people. There is too much deception and manipulation of the very people upon whom the business depends for its life; the customers. It seems difficult to find what has been called "Shaker values." By that I mean businesses that enjoy the creation of their products or services more than stacking up wealth. That is one reason why I favor small, local businesses. I look for people for who are happy to make enough to feed their family, put a roof over their heads, send the kids to college and survive as a business, just so long as they can keep making what they make or doing what they do.
I have strayed from my story: Does economic behavior make a difference in God's eyes? The Bible is replete with prophets condemning the greedy, the dishonest and the manipulative. In Isaiah 58 God says He will not listen to the prayers of otherwise pious people who cheat their workers and play unfair games in the marketplace. It does not matter if they fast and lay prostrate before Him adorned in their religious humility, God will not listen to their prayers because they do not practice economic and social justice. Unless he repents of his sins and allows God to transform his character, there is no room for Gordon Gecko in the New Earth.
