Think you can’t learn anything from games?

An article in the Wall Street Journal highlights the real-world strategies for business and investment which can be adopted from strategies in Monopoly. They include fundamental but important notions like thinking about Returns on Investment:

Now you won’t feel like you’ve wasted those loooong nights playing Monopoly until 2 in the morning.
