How to Win: Trades, Games, and Regulation

- Gamers play games to win them. In that context, every action a player takes is intended solely to serve this singular goal. Behavior that might seem self-destructive, dangerous, or even outright evil in the "real world" are not only accepted, but expected. Games have rules, strategies, risks, payoffs: this holds true for board games, video games, card games, even war games. Change the rules, and you change the players' behaviors. What if we treated global markets like a giant game?
