Lessons on Reality from Monopoly

Code up the Game Monopoly in Python or R. Run lots of simulations, then show similarities between simulation data and the U.S. economy.

Ever spent time playing the family board game, Monopoly? Ever felt like changing the rules of the game just to see what happens? Here's your chance.

The goal of the project is to run simulations of the Monopoly game, and show how patterns of wealth and income generation in the game mimic reality, if we set the rules right.


Proficiency in either R or Python.
