There are two kinds of economics, positive and normative. Positive economics deals with econ as it is without offering any value judgment. For instance, if I were to say that the unemployment rate in England is higher than that of the U.S. I would be making a positive economic statement (assuming that's true) because I'm stating something that could be proven empirically. However, if I were to say that England should invest in worker reeducation programs in order to retrain workers that have been displaced by technology and make them more productive and viable factors in the labor force, then I would be stating an opinion. That's where the trick is, generally politicians, economists, pundits and the like can't argue with empirically shown mathematically proven evidence, however they can disagree on the interpretation of those facts and the proper way to proceed with the given evidence. That's basically why there are no winners.
