Using EVE Online to predict the recession
A new blog post at Gamasutra gives an interesting perspective on EVE Online's economic trends and how they translate to real life. Virtual World Economist Ramin Shokrizade writes about his time helping CCP build the game's economy in the early days and how land tax and real estate bubbles can (and can't) work both in and out of a virtual environment.

Most notably, Shokrizade elaborates on a prediction he made in 2006 regarding the failed global banking system and how EVE Online taught him the warning signs. Now Shokrizade is an economic consultant to three international gaming companies, and he owes it all to EVE Online.
