More Monopoly Money is Printed Than Real Money

Were you the player who always bought Boardwalk and Park Place? or was given the responsibility as banker for the game Monopoly? Although this Monopoly money theory was thought to be a rumor, it is actually true. Parker Brothers reports that it is rolling in the fictional pink, blue, and yellow dough, printing around $30 billion each year. The U.S. government generally only prints money to replace old, or worn-out bills, which results in the annual printing of roughly $974 million, according to estimates published by CNBC. Monopoly is therefore not only out-printing the U.S., but Rich Uncle Pennybags the mustached mascot of the game is printing over 30 times what the U.S. is……Ed
