An architecture based on a decentralized market view integrates grid applications with catallactic middleware. A prototype application showed the concept's feasibility, as well as the middleware's effectiveness in balancing query-request workload across multiple grid services. Grid computing researchers have shown significant interest in using an economic paradigm for exchanging grid resources and services. With this approach, applications can use a market mechanism to schedule services access, thus giving them a fair, efficient way to share resources in high-demand periods. Most existing approaches rely on centralized brokers to coordinate resource access, and they're typically implemented over existing grid middleware. We propose an alternative approach based on F.A. Hayek's Catallaxy mechanism. Catallaxy's free-market, self-organizing coordination mechanisms adjust prices within the market based on the particular demands for a specific (scarce) resource
