Competition Is Not A Zero Sum Game

October 22, 2013

We often refer to competition as a zero sum game, but that’s actually being generous.

Competition is, in fact, a negative sum game, because resources are inevitably wasted in the process. By its very nature, competition can only be redundant, destructive, or both. Whatever tangible outcomes are achieved by teams in competition are necessarily less than those that could hypothetically be achieved by the same teams working cooperatively.

The single greatest source of waste in our economy is undoubtedly people striving to achieve the same outcomes through opposing efforts – in other words, the opposition of wills.
