Monopoly Business Success Game Owning property having lots of money and running a thriving business are parts of the American ideas of success They are also parts of the board-game Monopoly The ideas of prosperity within Monopoly remain throughout childhood and into the adult life The result of this creates a culture of people in the business world with the desires for more of the now real objects found in Monopoly The basic ideas behind Monopoly are the same concepts of the essay The More Factor by Laurence Shames In his essay Shames argues that the expansion of the frontier and acquisition of land has moved on to possession of material goods and economic growth as symbols of American success Each of these has its equivalent in Monopoly Success in the game is defined by owning the most property so as to acquire more money to build material things like houses and hotels ultimately resulting in the financial destruction of your opponents This type of success is an example of the way more works Shames says that if a person has the strive to obtain more land or money his apparent success will also be greater In Monopoly the player with the most drive to own more property will succeed In the spirit of the more-driven frontiersmen who succeeded by sweeping away the Indians and Mexicans the more-driven Monopoly player easily crushes his opponents by acquiring the most land In other words the More-Factor that Shames describes is the determining element when deciding who is the champion of the game Monopoly can also be equated to Barthes essay Toys when he states that toysare essentially a microcosm of the adult world Although the United States currentlyhas anti-monopoly laws the game still accurately represents the American business worldThe goals and ideas of success in Monopoly are also present in the world of business wherethe main objective is to make more money than the competition eventually
