Harper’s has an interesting history of the game “Monopoly.” If the story is correct, it indicates an interesting form/content relationship inasmuch as the owners (who collect the fees) had nothing, or little, to do with the creation of the game. Some grist for those who believe “property” is too important to be handled so cavalierly. A recommended light read.
