Pach-Attack is a weekly videocast where Industry Analyst, Michael Pachter answers questions on the economics of Videogames. This week one of the questions asked him what was the most interesting economic system he has recently seen. At the top of his list was Blizzard’s Real Money Auction House (RMAH). His full quote is transcribed below and the video is after the break. While he’s a little off with the game specifics – I think he’s confusing Runestones with Gems – he’s graspsed the concept behind it.
