Pass Go, Collect Unemployment

Monopoly reimagined for those who envy the 47 percent.

The fiscal-cliff negotiations have renewed our focus on potential cuts to government entitlements, which landed in the spotlight on the campaign trail earlier this year when Republican Mitt Romney dismissed 47 percent of the population as victims who are “dependent on government programs.”

All of this inspired Slate V to conjure a special edition of Monopoly just in time for the holidays.
