Funny Money- 19 April 2009

Funny Money is a weekly column published at the end of the week with the intent to have a little fun with the world of finance. Every weekend we’ll bring you a financial quote, a song relating to money, something interesting from the real world of business and a quick WoW gold making tip. Read on and have some fun…

Money Quote

Funny Business

As the US dollar continues to lose value against rival currencies, one artist has found new uses for it.

Weekend Gold Tip

Be sure to loot the corpses of the dead in your battlegrounds when you can. This can be particularly lucrative in areas of heavy battle, such as the keep area in Wintergrasp towards the end of the PVP event.

Bonus: A Gem of Humor from the Official WoW Forums

Ever wonder if Blizzard’s ‘blue posters’ tell their guild mates about their WoW jobs? One forum poster asks the question and gets a response from a blue. Hilarity ensues. For a concise version with only the blue responses, check out the WoWFix version.

    Awesome, Awesome website. I would have posted this under your ABOUT, but was unable to do so.

    I’ve always thought that MMO economies are a great study for economists and sociologists alike. The situation is similar in some ways to real life, but different in others. The price of a good or service in real life is dictated not just by demand, but also the costs in producing these things, whereas in an MMO, money is created entirely at no cost to the individual other than the opportunity cost of doing other things. Prices in WoW are almost entirely speculative!

    I look forward to not only seeing how you guys rate the game economy, but to learning a few thing about finance.
