It can be very hard to win playing fairly. We hear stories like this all the time. "He was a successful drug dealer; he could have been a successful legal business man....." or some such.

Chances are, he would have failed or could have. Much easier to make a few hundred grand selling drugs or guns than machine parts or crap on eBay. If a twelve year old inner city gang member can make allot of cash selling drugs, it really is not a difficult business to excel at.

Chances are, that 12 year old could never hope to run a legit business.
