Not the usual place that you would expect to be discussing the inner workings of EVE Online
In an interview with The Bank of England’s Chief Economist about Spotify, the following popped up!
Quote from BBC Article:
'Mr Haldane said games such as EVE Online and World of Warcraft were particularly useful as they had primitive economies which allowed goods and money to change hands between players.
He said some economists had in fact begun to use gaming technologies to understand behaviour and could be used to explore behaviour in a virtual economy by studying player reactions to certain changes in policy.’
Perhaps the world economy might work better if it is based on EVE Online
