Why do you think Itachi joined Akatsuki?
I really hate to start a thread for this, but today that question popped into my head. I was re-reading the last chapters, and came to the part where the Akatsuki Leader explained their goal about conquering the world's economy and the strategy to achieve it.
So far Itachi's personality and actions have been the most complex to understand. One day he develops this idea about becoming the most powerful ninja, then killed his clan for not thinking the same way as he, spared Sasuke's life for what seems to be a whim. All what involves his character remains in deep mystery. Yet, he's never been portrayed as greedy man.
What has Itachi got to do with Akatsuki's goal?
If you please, discuss.
