George soros-the zero-sum gameGeorge Soros & the Zero-Sum Game

TurtleTrader comment . George Soros, the legendary and enormously successful trader, recently appeared on ABC News Nightline program. The following excerpt of an exchange between George Soros and host Ted Koppel proves illuminating:

Ted Koppel: as you describe it, it [the market] is, of course, a game in which there are real consequences. When you bet and you win, thats good for you, its bad for those against whom you have bet. There are always losers in this kind of a game.

Soros: No. See, its not a zero-sum game. Its very important to realize

Ted Koppel: Well, its not zero sum in terms of investors. But, for example, when you bet against the British pound, that was not good for the British economy.

Soros: Well, it happened to be quite good for the British economy. It was not, lets say, good for the British treasury because they were on the other side of the tradeIts not your gain is not necessarily somebody elses loss.

Ted Koppel: Because I mean put it in easily understandable terms. I mean if you could have profited by destroying Malaysias currency, would you have shrunk from that?

Soros: Not necessarily because that would have been an unintended consequence of my action. And its not my job as a participant to calculate the consequences. This is what a market is. Thats the nature of a market. So Im a participant in the market.

TurtleTrader comment . Why would Soros say trading and speculating are not zero-sum games? Soros is to be saluted for his tremendous success, but he is indeed a speculator participating in a zero-sum game. Perhaps he is reluctant to be as brutally honest with Koppels audience as he is with himself. Trading is a zero-sum game when measured relative to underlying fundamental values. No trader can profit without another trader losing.
