Microeconomics and the Board Game Monopoly - All I ever needed to know about microeconomics I learned from the Hasbro board game Monopoly. Some people, like myself, need practical models in order to understand certain concepts and theories. In our text book The Economy Today it completely ignores the intrinsic value of business decisions because you can’t put a numeric value on it. The game Monopoly™ is all about the numbers. In the game of Monopoly™ you have goals: The object is to bankrupt all opponents. To do so, you must be dedicated and make each decision with the aim of improving your chances and wiping out your opponents.” (Monopoly) In what I will call throughout the paper real life, the goal is the same....   [tags: Microeconomics Essays]

This means that we will always want more of what is there and demand always initially exceeds supply, but supply will then catch up, and over time will fall behind again, although this ‘bottlenecking' is always temporary....   [tags: Economics] 1806 words
