This is in contrast to a zero sum relationship, where the outcome of the relationship is a gain for one participant at the direct expense of the other. Examples of positive sum relationships can be found in business transactions (trade in general) and in biology (bumblebee and the flower). Long term positive sum relationships are also known as symbiotic relationships. Zero sum relationships can also been seen in biology (the food chain) and in games, such as chess and checkers. Game Theory tries to predict best decision making outcomes based on the relationships of participants, and the consequence of decisions based on positive sum relationships or zero sum relationships.
