In economic circles, the idea is occasionally floated that the etymology of Monopoly, is something along the lines of:
Mono - One Pol - Political Y - Entity
Working under the idea that the only way monopolies emerge is if an entity is given a legal privilege. For example, tariffs on imports on widgets, grants the local widget producer a monopoly.
This makes sense to me, however when checking https://www.etymonline.com/search?q=monopoly -- Pol is referred to
pōlein "to sell," from PIE root *pel- (4) "to sell." and makes no reference to politics
Etymonline is not always the most reliable source, and there could be ideological pressure to not associate Monopoly with the State. Thus I am asking for a second opinion.
Is there any etymological link between Monopoly and Politic?
