Life is an "unfair" competition. Countries exist and encourage uneven or "unfair" competition between themselves. Self-interest no matter how described or derived reigns supreme. Nature "unfairly" kills or dominates those weaker than them. States compete using "unfair" tactics. Cities and towns compete "unfairly" with each other. Unfair , means the uneven existence or application of skill, knowledge, resources, management and physical superiority that some have over others to impose their "self-interest" over others. No one or thing lives in a vacuum.
Germany and Japan "lost" WWII. Germany thru VW has become the the #1 world seller of vehicles (Jan-June 2015) for the 1st time- 5.04 million vehicles ...Toyota dropped to #2 with "only" 5.02 million. Both countries subsidize their manufacturing base , they are "socialists!" Anybody want to buy a Fiat-Chrysler made Dodge Ram truck today?
