WASHINGTON (CAP) - The upheaval of the U.S. financial markets continued today as the Fed announced that the Federal Reserve Board will purchase ailing properties Baltic Ave, Marvin Gardens and Boardwalk for an unprecedented $3,650. This gives the federal government a controlling stake in strategic positions around the board.
"We are working closely with the other players to enhance the stability and orderliness of these key properties and minimize the disruption to the Monopoly economy," said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. "With the government's help, everyone will pass Go and will collect $200."
