Or do you really think the overall standard of living in the countries you list
is not increasing?
And by the way, who says economic measures are the only measure of "winning" and
"losing"? The way I see it, life is a game where _I_ decide the scorekeeping.
And for me at least, money isn't everything.

Short-term, it is hard to see how war and competition, which are both based
on WIN/LOSE cultures, could possibly benefit all in any way. Some evidence is
that in almost all capitalistic countries (eg USA, UK, Australia, Brazil, SE
Asia), the gap between the rich and poor continues to increase. The
unempowered and weak always lose without help.
