Remember the board game Monopoly? It is based on our economic system and offers insight into these historic times.

Most players of the board game know that when one player begins to win, it is very seldom that any one else moves into the lead. Most people concede the game when a front-runner becomes obvious. According to the rules, however, the game is not over until all the properties that were acquired earlier by other players have been mortgaged and lost to the winner. When the winner has it all, then the game is over.

This end-game rule is problematic in the real life Global Monopoly Game.
