English term or phrase: discrete event
Because the game is a discrete event -an activity with a defined ending point. However, internalizing an external loss is a lot easier to do with the other type of loss producing activity: a continuous process - an activity that has no clearly defined end. Losses from continuous processes are much more prone to become internalized because, like all internal losses, there is no predetemined ending point.
