Default Could Gold-Farming Aid Poorer Nations?

We've talked a bit about MMO gold-farming in the past, taking a look at the practice from multiple points-of-view, but a recent article at BCC raises a couple of interesting points I didn't consider before.

In fact, BCC reports that such activities could return more revenue than harvesting and selling coffee.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
