Me gaining the love of my family is no loss to anybody

but if there was no former trade, then that must mean the good is new. if it is new it must have replaced something, if it was not knew then it must have been going somewhere else. New trade=new good.

They aren't losing anything if they didn't have it in the first place. if country A stopped trading with country C then you would have a point. But if the deal creates new trade that otherwise did not exist then no one loses anything.

let's take the trade agreement.
country A and Country B make a trade agreement to exchange good A and good B. these two countries both benifit, however country C does not get either good A or B.
Country C, the third country gets the loss.

a trade agreement. a mutual defence pact. these are usually beneficial to both parties

Give me an example of a deal two countries would make.

4 years, 8 months ago

if two countries sign a trade deal then they usually both benefit. not exactly the same amount, but it is good for both. not everything is a zero sum game.

The supermarket looses a few bucks because you get your crops from your garden not from them .

Well...economically no one...but you are taking nitrogen and other key nutrients from the soil...

I plant a garden and gain crops. Who looses?

Every action has a reaction, but who says that reaction has to be somebody's loss?

Lmao wanting to be healthy and fit doesn't make u a wifebeater

People could say that just lifting weights is a gain only but what if that same person beats his wife, the strength he gets at the gym would increase the beating the wife got. Every action has a reaction whether it is obvious or not.

What if I have a great mood because I got to work early this morning? It doesn't necessarily mean that someone else will be sad about it, why would they?
