There's a difference, Josh. Real life endeavors usually require a fair bit of real risk. You can't start a business without putting your own money into it. The other reality is that in game, we all have access to the same resources. In the real world, an idea has to be that much better than someone else's if they have contacts you don't. Stock markets are another matter all together- retail investors start off with a huge disadvantage compared to institutional investors. They get the ability to create positions for free, where we have to pay commissions to a stock broker. Also, institutional investors usually have powerful and sophisticated algorithms they can use to get a leg up, where we're stuck with value investing, and maybe options if we ever build a nest egg large enough to justify the commission cost.
