Theres no economy since there's an infinite amount of money being given to players, infinite number of items to buy. Shut up about this made up "unbalanced economy" nonsense

The Rockstar Federal Reserve System keeps track of  our deposited currency (M2). I would suggest rockstar  start a Stimulus program (preferably MBS purchases) to offset the glitched currency which plagues our economy.

There is still value, only it degrades with time.

Well it isn't really an economy at all, maybe when the stock market is finally released it will sort of be like an economy, but for some reason R* is deciding to wait until everyone has bought everything to release it.

They are obviously talking about the "in-game economy" which is why they said "in-game economy".

 

Which is obviously not the same thing as a national economy. And they come in different levels of complexity, all the way down to the most "basic" of in-game economies with virtually no features except money.

 

http://en.wikipedia....Virtual_economy

 

That said, their claims that glitchers are "unbalancing the economy" is pure bullsh*t, since Cash Cards do exactly the same thing (create a large amount of money out of nothing)... yet those are not only fine but encouraged.

 

The only difference is that with Cash Cards, Rockstar gets even more of your hard earned cash, above and beyond the $1 billion we paid them on release day out of our pockets.

How is there an ingame economy though? You essentially just score points, and use those points to buy stuff. There is an unlimited amount of points to be scored. 

 

Also, other players really don't affect your money that much at all.

Is BAWSAQ even working ? I always mean to check but get side-tracked every time. If that's the case, then I guess there could be a bit of an economy in the game afterall. However I don't see it as enough to support a player economy, that would be really sweet. But I think it'd be expecting too much out of rockstar.

 

What we have a giant TF2 arena cluttered with activities to partake in, along with some RPG elements dotted around the place. It's an expansive multiplayer mode. Just because it has online in the time doesn't mean it's an MMO, not in the slightest.

Its also the reason why I think players should drop more stuff when they do, it just makes it more interactive and dynamic. But no, you just get $100 for killing a player.

I always imagined quotes around the word "economy" when dealing with this game.

An "in-game economy" would imply there was scarcity of resources, which of course there is not. There is simply no economy, Rockstar is false.

The economy becoming unbalanced is exactly because of what you are talking about

An "in-game economy" would imply there was scarcity of resources, which of course there is not. There is simply no economy, Rockstar is false.

The enconomy for items is pre set based on the kind of earnings we are predicted to make they have a set price. If everyone suddenly has millions of pounds then that car upgrade or new weapon become nothing you might as we'll be given them, the balance has been lost.

Also the stock market isn't released because the glitching has unbalanced things and one player could easily influence the markets by buying large numbers of stocks. (On a side note the stock market wouldn't work if there was no enconomy).

In terms of cash cards unbalancing the game the most you can get from one card is just over 1 million, if your later in the game this actually doesn't go that far and is very diff from the glitchers having 10's or 100's of millions.

at some point rock* could stop printing money and stop selling apts basically now its an economy. u could list ur apt and u could only buy one from another player if ones for sale. pricing basically set by the seller. as far as money in missions it would have to be zero sum so in order to make money it depends on somebody losing it somewhere else in the game. DM is easy u win u win $$ u lose u lose the $$ that the winners get.

 

but then again ,cash cards.

You don't understand. There's an unlimited number of things I can buy in this game: cars, apartments, weapons and ammunition, it never runs out. Furthermore, employment is unlimited as well as money. Sure I need to earn money by playing the game to unlock the stuff to buy, but that doesn't mean there is an economy. If I had the only apartment with a view and only 20 Adders were created per year, then we would be getting closer to the requirements for an economy to exist.
