Asherons Call: A Virtual Economy with Real Value

| 29 Jan 2002 04:12

While not an Asheron's Call story, it is an interesting item in its own right. An economics professor did a study of eBay transactions for items sold from Everquest and determined that if the game world were a real nation it would be the world's 77th most wealthy country, right behind Russia. You can read the entire article over at New Scientist. Makes you wonder what Dereth would rank.
