CSM7 Elections: The Results!

The CSM election results were announced earlier by the CEO of CCP, CCP Hellmar, at the EVE Online Fanfest here in Reykjavik.

There can be little doubt about what the coolest aspect of EVE is.  Inflation, money supply and the velocity of money is where it‘s at, right?  Well, that‘s what this blog is about.

Three of four main price indices show considerable inflation in February, ranging from 1.4% for the Consumer Price Index to 8.1% for the Mineral Price Index.  This inflation has been evident since last August.  Many have suggested that this is caused by the rewards coming from Incursions.

I always find it fascinating how the most life threatening issues often come up from the smallest, most innocent moves. For instance, you could enjoy a meal at home, drop the dirty cutlery into the sink with the firm intention to clean it the day after, only to realize two weeks have passed and the kitchen is now inhabited by a new indigenous, hostile life-form derived from all the junk you forgot to wash during that time.
