fixed-pie
 n.— «The Bush Administration has adopted what negotiators refer to as a fixed-pie frame of mind—each gain by one side is a loss to the other. And since they cannot tolerate any sense of loss, they refuse to negotiate at all.» —“Has President Bush Constructed An American Maginot Line?” by Kathleen Reardon Huffington Post Feb. 21, 2007.
