    cheapskate you are, Jason (with that tactic, you’ll bankrupt the bank)

    You just have to remember to make Jason pay 13 times the listed rate for any properties he buys, rents, fines, etc. and it all evens out.

    Exactly – we can’t have selective inflation, now can we?

    $200 in 1934 was worth $3315 in 2011…even more today.

    Who else calculated that Jason is using 3.9% as his inflation rate?

    Keep the burst housing bubble in mind.

    True, but the strip is from 2001.

    Generally, real estate appreciates faster than inflation. So the property costs and rents would have increased by much more than a factor of 13. As to the construction cost of the houses and hotels, I’m guessing that those would be somewhat in line with overall inflation, but I really don’t know.

    The prize for winning second place in a beauty contest has definitely gone up, particularly after the winner disgraces herself and has to give her crown up to you, and then you’re able to behave in a similar fashion and write a tell-all book about your meteoric rise, your fall from grace, and your subsequent rebirth and atonement.

    It’s as if it was PLAYED in 1934.

    Jason is relentless, that’s for sure.

    There’s this joke going around that goes like this:
    You know Monopoly is an old game because there’s a luxury tax and rich people go to jail.

    Just wait until he hits Boardwalk with motels.

    Rent on Boardwalk, with Hotel, is I believe $2,000.00. I am sure there certain ones more ambitious than I am, wonder what that would be today?
