1. Exploitation is exploitation whether wealth is zero sum or not.

2. But if it's a war of cliches, you can always try "You mean trees can grow to the sky?"

I'm in a conversation right now where I'm being hit with "wealth is not a zero sum game." Because I had a superficial understanding of it at first I did a teeny bit of googling and found it is a major talking point with apologists all over.

My point in the conversation is basically that our current system is incredibly exploitative both of natural resources and labor. They repeat the wealth is not a zero sum game. Is this just wrong, a red herring?? any pointers. ___________________________________ http://mailman.lbo-talk.org/mailman/listinfo/lbo-talk
