hahaha sure.... you half-glass-empty-cynic? always considering opportunity cost and how much could have been made?

not considering specifics, if it was zero sum game, we shouldn't be seeing share prices and various indices rising. every profit would cancel every loss as zero sum, hence no expansion... people would only sell if they are making a profit, which according to your theory would mean that buyers are making a loss, so they wouldn't buy even if someone was selling, reducing demand, crashing prices, turning profits of sellers into loss, so they wouldn't sell either and everything would come to a stop.


maybe, maybe, both of us look at it in their own way and both of us are right like Schrodinger's cat who was dead as well as alive at the same time.
