Rich Uncle Pennybags the mascot of the game Monopoly
In 1902 to 1903, Magie designed the game and play tested it in Arden, Delaware.
The game was created to be a “practical demonstration of the present system of land grabbing with all its usual outcomes and consequences”.
She based the game on the economic principles of Georgism, a system proposed by Henry George, with the object of demonstrating how rents enrich property owners and impoverish tenants.
She knew that some people could find it hard to understand why this happened and what might be done about it, and she thought that if Georgist ideas were put into the concrete form of a game, they might be easier to demonstrate.
Magie also hoped that when played by children the game would provoke their natural suspicion of unfairness, and that they might carry this awareness into adulthood.
The Landlord’s Game has some similarities to the basic rules of the board game Zohn Ahl, played by the Kiowa Indians of North America.
There are hints that suggest Elizabeth Magie might have known Zohn Ahl and incorporated some of the game’s ideas.
In 1903, Magie filed for a patent on the game which was granted in 1904. Magie and other fellow Georgists formed a company,
Economic Game Company, in 1906 New York to publish the game. Besides Magie, the incorporators were E. H. Monroe of Chicago and E. G. Lenbusher of New York. Magie approached c to publish this and one other game in 1909.

They’re urging lawmakers to pass the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal Act.
A few Google employees joined a group of workers in Washington, DC, on Thursday, urging members of Congress to outlaw mandatory arbitration, a common business practice in employment and consumer contracts that requires workers and customers to take legal disputes to private arbitration — a quasi-legal forum with no judge, no jury, and nearly zero government oversight.
Tanuja Gupta, an engineering program manager who works for Google in New York, is part of a group of tech workers calling for a federal ban on forced arbitration. Last week, Google said the company would stop mandating the practice for employees, largely a response to persistent worker pressure.
