Level playing field

Posted by Word Camel on December 07, 2005

Level playing field - who coined it? To have a "level playing field" was coined in the 1980's according to the list of phrase meanings and origins. I'm just curious to know if anyone knows more about where it came from. I'm interested because the Thomas Friedman book, The World is Flat goes on about it obsessively.
