No Land for Zero-Sum Games

A good rule of thumb: there are no zero-sum games in practice. For each zero-sum game, if you add the opportunity cost of playing it, you end up with a negative-sum utility-shredder.

Whenever you are in a situation that appears to be zero-sum, the best move is to find a different game to play.
