Right Column Redux:  Damn Shame

 The Real Story of Monopoly

Craig Reynolds was once a prolific contributor to this column. I follow him on Linked In, and he led me to solid gold: the true story of Monopoly and here. Turns out the origin story (like that of Batman; you can look it up) is not as simple as you’ve been told. Monopoly was created by a woman, who proposed two games played on the same board; one in which prosperity was shared, and the other, which we all know, in which greed is good.
