I mean think of this way. AO decided to govern the economy by imposing regulations, the regulations are high taxes, high repairs, and restricted to access silver. The only people who can manage this are the big guilds, just like in the real world, the only businesses who can cope with high regulations and taxes are the big corporations and big banks. EvE online on the other hand decided to deregulate and say "Hey, you're all on your own, may the best man wins", thus the average person who is willing to take the time to understand the market can still compete with the big corps.
Really AO economy is more of a centralized economy where as EvE is more of a free market economy. Just like in our world today. The US of today is much more centralized today than it was in late 1800 through early 1900s, yet today the US is experiencing the biggest wealth gap between the rich and the poor, plus have more people on welfare or collecting government subsidies than ever. Where as in the late 1800s the US had the highest standard of living and the highest GDP growth ever known to mankind.
The solution is simple. The devs need to get out of the market by lower their Cheap Albion Online Gold
restrictions and fees on silver that way players don't have to spend so much time farming silver but can do other thing such as pvp. It's a bit ironic because the thing is the more restrictions and fees they place on silver the more time people have to spend farming for silver.
