hehe I don't know, I think Inflation and DB bloat go hand in hand ;)
There have been a couple MOOs that attempted to simulate economy. I quit going there because they also wanted to simulate real life. Heh, heh. I am, however, enamored of the concept of a loose-themed MOO in which quota is money. Programmers would charge "parenting fees" to allow others to create kids of their objects. The results would be interesting; the desire to maximize return on investment would motivate programmers to scend to new heights of efficiency. :)
Unfortunately, I no longer know the addresses of those economy MOOs, nor do I even know if they are still around.
