We are working on a system for the optimised access and replication of data on a Data Grid. Our approach is based on the use of an economic model that includes the actors and the resources in the Grid. Optimisation is obtained via interaction of the actors in the model, whose goals are maximising the profits and minimising the costs of data resource management. In the system, local optimisation results in global optimisation through emergent marketplace behaviour. In this paper we give an
