Economy of Everquest


I just read an interesting and disturbing paper on the economy of Everquest. At the time of writing it was the 77th largest economy in the world, where citizens can earn the equivalent of $3.42 (USD) per hour. The value easily exceeds the monthly subscription cost, although it is a much smaller wage then the players make at their day jobs. None the less, it is a wage that one could scrape by on if it were one’s only source of income.
