This thread is a slap in the face to the idea the economy is broken. That’s not possible…
The economy is a collective representation of what people are willing to spend time on.
It can only be broken if you declare your time on a preferred activity as more valuable than someone else’s.
Whenever someone else spends more time on something, devaluing it, then by definition YOU have more time to do something else.
If your idea of fun is to find market inefficiencies and exploit them…then you can profit from people’s different perceptions of what is valuable.
But if you want to make a “living” doing something that’s not valuable it doesn’t mean the market is broken.
It means you’retoo stubborn to go do something else.
Disclaimer the reason this isn’t true in the real world should be obvious. But has to be said.
IRL we don’t have the luxury or option to do something else. at least not like in a video game.
If EvE made you pay 1billion isk a month with only game play to earn it or you died in real life…then yeah…maybe then EvE recessions would be broken like real life recessions are.
