The dude that was hired to oversee the trade system in Ashes has a Ph.D in Economics... That's legit.

    Plot Twist: They're actually gathered all that money to build a new country around an island instead of a game.
  • The only issue is that game economics often do not work like real world economics, game economies are often burned to the ground regularly with bugs or high end items. I do look forward to future statements about how the baseline economy will work ingame once things start to be fleshed out.
  • Well at least we know the mean "business"

    Sir, this is the Humor Police. You're going to have to come with us.
  • The Intrepid Team has my absolute trust and I think they will know why they need an expert in Economics. Anyway I thought the CFO and Steven should be enough experienced to make an ingame economy, but I hope that the economy will grow and be huge in fact of the new hiring
  • welcome new people hope to get to know them in the Q and A and hope there as passionate as the other at Intrepid

    Absolutely. With a Ph.D in Economics, I'm 100% sure the dude gets it. Economics is a ridiculous field. I took lower and upper division economics for my undergraduate degree, and it was harder than all my math and statistics classes combined. Anyone who has a concentration in it, has my respect imo.
  • It goes along with what i been saying in guild and on discord, the economy will be a real deal. I would love to ask him a billion questions about his view on game economics. :P maybe we should be studying up on our economics.
  • How can one not be delighted and overjoyed that they hired an actual economist to drive the in-game economy? Welcome, all new @Intrepid team members, and thanks for working to create such a rich world for our enjoyment!
  • I remember that GW2 also hired an economy expert; I hope ours is better.  :D  It looks like we have a great team of veterans and I looking forward to seeing/experiencing their work.  <cracks whip>  /big hug <3
  • As im starting to study economics, and the Stock Market and the basic economy will be this huge they are saing, im pretty happy to then maybe be good at it and can be rich <3 muahahaha, maybe i can make or join a economy guild and dominate the server :P
