If you are a hard-core gamer and have an aptitude for financial systems, then the natural combination of your interests and skills would surely make you the ideal candidate for a job as a lead economics designer for web-based games.

The economy is not just something pundits expound upon on 24-hour cable news stations or people worry about as their mortgage payment comes up.
