Nothing made my mother angrier than Monopoly. She was incensed that we were teaching children the glories of evil Capitalism, which only fostered greed and selfishness.

Ben Hunt pointed out last week that the purpose of the Federal Reserve is to ensure that the war between labor and capital is always decided in capital's favor.

Labor's earnings are linear. Capital's earnings are cumulative.

My daughter was playing kid's Monopoly last week. The game stops whenever the first person goes bankrupt and then whoever has the most money wins. My mother's voice shrieked in the back of my head like a harpie but I think I might have to buy that game for my kid.

I've been poor. I can see my way towards being rich. Being rich is way more fun and I think I'd rather my daughter learn the utility of money management than the nobility of labor.

They miss the part where we are all meant to feel earnestly bad about our greed
