I'm pretty sure the company was Hasbro. That's all I got.

Originally, it was made by a grade school teacher to help her students learn about economics and such. Then some other dude took the idea and made millions off of it. Basically, a jerk stole an idea and became rich because of it.
-Please correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a while since I learned about that.

As far as I know, there are 5mto 10 different groups of people who can make a legitimate claim to coming up with it on their own. One jackass just decided gto rip off the rest of the wrold aand make millions. So the game was founded on greed, and continues to be about greed.

From how I heard it, the game was created by some person who wanted to prove that steep property taxes would prevent a monopoly in real estate and be fairer than other forms of taxation, but Parker Brothers bought the rights to the game but removed the tax rule. Even without them, it's still possible to have scenarios where everyone is rich and has lots of property.

Although this isn't answering the question, I read somewhere that the guy who made up the board originally drew it on his tablecloth.

The first original game board was round, and the pieces still used today such as the dog and iron were random items he found around his house. Also on every board the 4 corners always remain the same
