Fair trade gold farming
The World Bank issued a report saying that "virtual online currencies and digital work now provide real income opportunities to poor and unskilled workers in developing countries", offering jobs by "playing online games on behalf of wealthier players who are too busy to tend to their characters themselves". Ars Technica writes about that and proposes Fair Trade Gold.
Has gold farming become so widespread that this is now considered the norm? Do people now believe that it is okay to buy gold, as long as it is "Fair Trade Gold"?
