Ironically, the game was later used in a study that concludes people who become rich tend to miscredit their success.

Thanks! A lot of people feel games like Monopoly are great for teaching basic entrepreneurial skills. That hasn't been true in my experience, but I do feel it's a good game for finding out what other people are really like. Thanks for reading!
