Ralph Anspach (born 1926) is an American retired economics professor from San Francisco State University. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago, and fought with the Mahal in 1948 in support of the independence of Israel. He is best known, though, for creating the game Anti-Monopoly, which resulted in a 1974 trademark infringement lawsuit brought by Parker Brothers. In 1979, the parties reached a settlement allowing Anspach to continue marketing Anti-Monopoly.
