Zero-Sum Game
A situation in which one participant's gains result only from another participant's equivalent losses.
    
The net change in total wealth among participants is zero; the wealth is just shifted from one to another.
    
Options and Future contracts are examples of zero-sum games (excluding costs). For every person who gains on a contract, there is a counter-party who loses. Gambling is also an example of a zero-sum game.
    
A stock market, however, is not a zero-sum game because wealth can be created in a stock market.
