Reference #375: Thinking in Systems

The system archetype of "success to the successful" is where one party can use their wealth, privilege, or information to create more wealth, privilege, or information. It occurs when the winners of a competition — in a game, in business — win the means to compete even more effectively in the future. This forms a reinforcing feedback loop. In this loop, winners continue to win and losers continue to lose.
