"If the market is a dog-eat-dog world, why do I sometimes find myself cheering for my supposed rival -- at apparent odds with my own interests? My workplace has a cafeteria with a wonderful salad bar. The process is simple: The customer chooses a salad bed from a tray of greens prepackaged in plastic containers and hands the selected container to the salad barista on the other side of the counter, who then walks with the customer down a row of options, adding whatever the customer desires."
