No, a more accurate statement is they generated over 12.533 Billion ISK worth of ore/minerals. The difference is that generating ore and sellling it to others is a transaction that makes both parties better off, whereas bounties simply inject additional ISK into the game and as a result it reduces the purchasing power of ISK that already exists and transfers it to the ratter.
So the ore can have distributional effects, but it has little to no effect on inflation.
No, you are just simply wrong. Producing something has a real effect. Increasing the money supply has a nominal effect and can have real effects too. Further, allowing too much ISK creation can have a deleterious effect on the economy via inflation.
Mining does not result in ISK creation, the mining and selling of ore re-arranges who has the ISK, and the acts of refining and other uses for that ore probably leads to ISK destruction.
This is not a Goons/non-Goons thing, you are just simply wrong in your understanding of how the monetary base in the game works.
